James Fernie led us on a wonderful trip to some of the townships in the Cape Flats. He explained the history of the area and provided background about the struggles in SA from the early 1940's to the present day. These suburbs contain a hugely disproportionate number of Cape Town citizens and conditions are crowded and poverty and deprivation is a result. The tour took us to several small non-profit organisations so we could meet the people running them and also the people who benefit from them. Uthando supports the non-profits by bringing visitors and funds and helping to raise awareness. The trip was joyful and fascinating; it's not voyeuristic walk - snapping at people as they go about their daily business. It's a respectful yet fun opportunity to see why the people of Cape Flats need assistance and how successful it is when it's available. I highly recommend it!
