Khayelitsha’s Township Café

This unique coffee shop opened in Khayelitsha, a township in Cape Town serving the people of the township.  The prices are set to serve the community in which the coffee shop in located and providing a service that is in demand, good coffee.

When I was on my spring break trip last year to South Africa, we were told over and over again how development was what South Africans wanted for themselves.  Tourist dollars over charity.  We were told this in our orientation our first day at NMMU and again on our city tour of Port Elizabeth.  I love this story because it exemplifies what we were told through these sessions.  I hope to read/see more like this.
