The impoverished areas of Cape Town are known for drug and alcohol abuse, gangs, etc. It is lovely to see so much good work taking place. The

children look forward to attending the programmes. The children even clean up the site before the programme. They are incredibly enthusiastic about learning. We are also very pleased with our youth who support this programme so strongly. There is a lot of potential here, and much can be achieved with the pervasive, loving attitude.
