Cape Town, often called the “Mother City”, sits at the base of the majestic Table Mountain, between the sea and the mountain that rises above it like a crown. A beautiful and very diverse city, it has suffered the ravages of Apartheid, with townships and informal settlements and extreme poverty. We’re going to work with our partner, Build the Future, wherever they need us most. Our teams humbly come alongside and do big projects, like painting, digging, planting and building. It’s inspiring to see how much a group can accomplish in just a few short days. And on every trip, there's time to connect with the kids. It may look like helping to prepare and serve lunch, participating in the classroom, or just playing, but this opportunity to build relationships can create lasting change. There’ll be a visit to the Spice Route and Table Mountain and an excursion to Robben Island.
