Insecurity vs Victimhood

I have been in Helderberg for four days, and I encountered two racial attacks from the Somerset West mall and industrial area while with the kids from Lwandle Township. Most people walk around with either stereotyped mind about blacks, or have fear after hearing about the crime or being victim but it takes a wise man and courage not to put blue print in everyone.

We as young people wont…

The country had a buzz about the WC. initially neg with every gov dept complaining that money was spent on wc, every union threatening to disrupt the wc & even criminals captured on national tv promising to stage their own!!!

Men and women behind this!

How the people on sites are benefiting or growing from the project is beyond my description or one 's assessing till be part of them. I cant even record all the sms 'es, emails or calls not only to say thank you but to update about the progress in developing and benefits, joy etc and how freely we are with our work or friendships with them. One thing I admire about our project and make it somehow exception is that it gives freely and not manipulatively. I for one I see this people out there…
