Soweto Awakening...

“Today was rough for me. I thought I was prepared… but I wasn’t. You see, I was driven to the township of Soweto, just outside Johannesburg.

To call it a low-income, poverty stricken area… doesn’t even come close to describing what life is like here. Let me do my best to try.

At the steering wheel was a man- another volunteer named Kenton. Little did I know he was driving me into what would become the most eye-opening and humbling experience of my life! A series of experiences, sights, smells and sounds that would literally leave me speechless for more than two hours. “

  1. I am glad that you made it safely. I'm looking forward to reading about your experiences. It is admirable that you have travelled so far in order to act on something that you believe in deeply. Be safe and keep us informed.
