Images of Emthonjeni

a family home/store in Zandspruit

There are about 230 kids who get to be a part of the after-school program at Emthonjeni... a safe place to play and learn and be fed. This is a far cry from the estimated 16,000 kids who live in the settlement of Zandspruit (one of many informal settlements in Johannesburg). But for these 230 kids... it matters. The program is lead by some amazing women. Women straight from the community of Zandspruit as well. The heart and the commitment these ladies have to giving these kids a safe and beautiful place to grow humbles me.
