The Manenberg House
2414 days ago
Meet Pete and Sarah Portal, a young couple from Cape Town, with an exciting plan.
They have bought a house in Manenberg (An area of Cape Town that is known for gangs, violence and drugs.) and are raising funds to renovate it, inside and out, so that they can live in it with friends who need help getting out of gangs and off drugs.
The initiative forms part of a project/family called Fusion, a community-based organisation working to help young people caught up in lifestyles of destruction find hope and healing, by offering them an alternative community to be part of. View their website for more information.
Pete and Sarah want to contribute to the breaking down of social walls in Cape Town by cultivating family in a community that seems to have lost belief in itself. Follow their journey on Pete's blog: http://peteportal.com/
