This is a story of how two groups of people from completely different backgrounds are working together to improve the lives of all members of the Gugulethu community. People from Stellenbosch and Gugulethu are joining hands to give help to those who really need it – setting up training and skills development centres in impoverished communities. It is a story of different cultures coming together to heal the wounds of the past and to give its victims a greater chance of a happy future.
