On Friday evening Youth Solutions Africa held their first Miss Shelter and the event was filled with fun. This shelter started a few years back with about eight people.
Today there are around 70 people living here. Male and female. People who move from the streets, manage to get work and then find their own place.
The challenge is high rentals. It is impossible to get a place of your own so most people end up sharing or live in a commune.
Last week Mark Williams and his team from the Central City Improvement District were working with some of the street children near Green Market Square. I was touched by the way they dealt with these kids. The trust they build. The humanity of it all.
