In 1963, in apartheid South Africa, a 23-year-old white woman went somewhere she wasn’t supposed to.
She drove her car into a township called Langa, on the outskirts of Cape Town. And the things she saw there – the fear, the poverty, the injustice, but also the hope, the generosity, the warmth – changed her life.
And then she went on to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of others… through Ikamva Labantu.
Helen Lieberman is the visionary founder of Ikamva Labantu – and today it’s one of South Africa’s largest and most respected community driven organisations.
