On a recent visit to Siyabulela Primary school in Langa, we discovered that many of the 700 pupils who go to that school depend on the one meal a day they get at school. It is lovingly prepared by the ladies in this photo. The pupils eat in relays of 10 minutes with no dining room or chairs to sit on. Sadly, their budget does not stretch to include spoons for the learners to use. Some of our kind visitors from Canada donated 80 spoons so that there would be enough for each relay. In this pic, the ladies who cook the 700 plus meals per day are showing how happy they are to have received some new SPOONS!
I am a tourist guide and tour operator in Cape Town, the most beautiful city in the world.
Cape Town is about more than the beauty. It is a lot about the people who have the biggest smiles and a genuine warm and inviting vibe. Cape Town also has a rich culture, an amalgam of the many settlers and inhabitants from Africa, Asia and Europe.
The story of our recent history, from apartheid to reconciliation and freedom is a moving story which I love to tell. I was lucky enough to be a journalist during the years of our transformation and witnessed the opening up of this country.
Join me on a tour and you will hear lots about this joyous and exciting place.
