The mission…..

What are we doing

• Challenging ourselves as a well-off white middle family to survive on the average black household income of R3000 per month

Why are we doing this?

• For our family to have a direct experience into a daily South African existence so that we can create a boarder conversation of the role that empathy in places in underpinning a healthy democracy

How  are we doing this?

• Living in a 9m2 one room shack with outside communal tap and ablutions with no electricity for cooking and lighting

When are we doing this?

•August 2013
