Yesterday I visited Khayelitsha, Gugulethu and Langa with UTHANDO (love South Africa) How Incredible?!?! Uthando is a unique Non Profit company. The aim is to raise funds for community development projects in South Africa. What I came away with: “Visiting these projects gave me hope and opened my eyes to what lies beyond. I came away with this, “That Every single visitor to South Africa and every single  fellow South African should visit the townships, and become involved in a project, because they need us, and we need them even more.”
