A 20-minute drive from Table Mountain and V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa, lays the townships; underdeveloped, urban living areas lined with tin roofed homes that until the end of Apartheid were reserved for South African non-whites. Still present today, the townships are rife with gangs, drugs and severe poverty. Janine Roberts created the Ukama Community Foundation, which offers kids in the township balanced and nutritious meals.
