Building eKhaya eKasi: Container Arrives

The 40-foot container arrives, representing the cornerstone of eKhaya eKasi... but there's not enough maneuvering room for the truck to set it on the foundation, so it is unloaded by the roadside.

The crane rolls into Khayelitsha, creating a buzz in the community as it prepares to move the container into place.

Time for action. Feet out!

Crane up!

Prepare to lift!

Mission accomplished!

Now in place, the container will serve as a temporary storage area for building materials.

Once construction is completed, it will be converted into two small microbusinesses, an art boutique and beauty salon, generating income for the community and helping the center remain self-sustainable.
