Project Description

Township Tour

Colourful”, “Vibrant”, “Busy”, “Welcoming”…. just some of the adjectives that describe township life!

Come and explore the daily lives and culture of the Xhosa people living in Cape Town townships. The street shops, food and shabeens with their home-made brew, reflect a different community to the one found in the city centre. Meet some gogos and tatas who bead for Relate bracelets, a 100% not-for-profit social enterprise founded with the vision to help the less fortunate create better lives for themselves. Speak to traders, the gospel singer and the woman proud of her home garden … no one can describe the buzz you feel in the township and besides this is how the majority of South Africans live. Culture is not something you read about… you need to experience it.
