Born Free Generation

Asandiswa Makapela is 20 years old and lives in Langa Township in Cape Town with her brother and her sister in law and their two children in their one-room home. Asandiswa finished school with very high marks and is trying to get a bursary so she can study teaching at university. “My mother passed away when I was 9 years old and we didn’t have anyone to provide for us…. We were smart and we worked hard so the teachers liked us and helped support us with school shoes and books.”
