Photos - Ocean View (and nearby Mountain View shack Community)

Read journal entry...


Ocean View is about a 10 minute drive from our location at All Nations. There are 6 of us with All Nations on the Ocean View team (other students from All Nations were assigned to the Masiphumelele team).


Mountain View - an informal settlement (shacks) near Ocean View that has been waiting for permanent residence for 10 years now (a huge problem is sanitation and fresh water supply)

a cupboard with all the food they have
the laundry room
the backyard

Back to the main part of Ocean View...a little soccer...

a "tuck shop" is like your corner "convenient mart"
with soda pop, chips, candy, cigarettes, etc.
the "flats" (government housing like the "projects" in the US)
