Students had an eye-opening immersive experience while on the AEM 3600 trek to Johannesburg, South Africa 🇿🇦⠀
To get a comprehensive view of the city, the group went on a walking tour through Diepsloot, a township that was formed after the end of apartheid. It was their first encounter with townships and the people who live there. They had the opportunity to meet owners of small informal businesses known as Spazas, and learn about how they started the business and how they manage their day-to-day operations in the area.⠀

These beautiful people have lived in Southern Africa for thousands of years.
Now they are only 100 000 Bushmen in Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Angola. They are persecuted and forced to give up on their traditions and ancestral customs. They were first evicted from their own land, then banned from hunting and forced to apply for permits to enter the reserve.
