During their off-season break, Tim Mannah, Joseph Paulo, Mitch Allgood and Ben Smith have travelled to Cape Town, South Africa to do some community work and put some smiles on people's faces. Tim has decided to keep a travel diary with what he and the boys have been doing over there.

Day 5

Today was our last day in South Africa but before we flew out we went and visited Masiyile High School with a team from A21.

The A21 Project's (Abolishing injustice in the 21st century) in Cape Town focusses on identifying the human trafficking hot spots and educating school kids about the common traps of trafficking.

We had the privilege of joining the team as they presented to the kids. It was a confronting realisation about their reality. The statistics are alarming and it was great to see people making the effort to ensure that something can be changed.

The teacher asked to have a chat about how working hard can pay off and provide options for their future. These kids were smart and a great laugh. We even got one of them to have a dance off with Sefa.
