What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Children and youth in Soshanguve, South Africa, are affected by HIV/AIDS, poverty, substance abuse and juvenile crime. Most of them are HIV/AIDS orphans, staying with their grannies in shacks, with less or no hope for the future. The loss of their loved ones has robbed these young people of the hope for an education or a bright furture, with many of them taking to substance abuse.
