Visiting Soweto

One of the most sobering places to visit in South Africa is the village of Kliptown in Soweto, South Africa. Nelson Mandela grew up in Soweto and while conditions have improved there for many, we see that there is a long way to go for the residents of Kliptown.

Even gaining access to running water is a challenge, it being shared with many other local residents, and access is unavailable on Sundays because of the local maintenance being done on the water to ensure it is clean enough for people to drink and bathe.
