    296 | Cape Town, South Africa A story from Tamara about helping yourself. “An informal settlement is a temporary structure, this settlement was formed in 1987. 400 people live in this settlement but in Khayelitsha there are a total of 312 settlements. I'm a community leader here and I do my best to help people with what they need. This community is strong, when they want something they wake up, because we know we’re on our own, there's no one to help us except our selves.” Meet a Stranger a day - http://365docobites.com 365 documentaries in 365 days - Strangers' short and shorter stories.

      295 | Cape Town, South Africa A story from Emily about contributing. "There are fires here all the time, it's a real problem. It’s because there are so many people living here, they spread so quickly and are so devastating. There was a fire in 2013 that really inspired me to do something, it destroyed the homes of 6000 people. I’m a part of a group that is working on a heat detector device to help stop the spread of the fires. It just doesn’t feel right, to not contribute to some kind of positive social change.” Meet a Stranger a day - http://365docobites.com 365 documentaries in 365 days - Strangers' short and shorter stories.

        294 | Cape Town, South Africa A story from Lumka about doing what you have to, to survive. "I'm not from here, I moved here 13 years ago from the country. The life here is very difficult. When I first arrived there was no electricity and no toilets. In the winter there are floods and in the summer there are fires. When I’m sleeping I here sounds that you might think is the wind but often it is people trying to get in, it is not safe here.” “Why do you stay?” "I have no choice. I came her to make money and what ever money I make, I send back home to my parents."

              291 | Cape Town, South Africa A story from Luleka about trying to save more lives. “I have two boys, both beautiful and handsome. The work I do in our community, I do for them. I started by cleaning the community’s bins because there were dog size rats in them. People also dump their rubbish in the sewers and I try and educate them to not do that because the rats also go in there. The problem is that young kids and toddlers like to play in the water and if it is made dirty by all the rubbish the children can get very sick. It is important to take care of the people who are living in your community, by caring for them and educating them, because it can help stop the diseases that a spreading every single second. This is about lives, I am trying to save more lives.” Meet a Stranger a day - http://365docobites.com 365 documentaries in 365 days - Strangers' short and shorter stories.

                290 | Cape Town, South Africa A story from Abunga & Sizwe about inspiring change. “This is our community, its tough in here. We experience a lot of negativity as we lack role models so many of us tend to engage in criminal activity, drugs, alcohol, teenage pregnancy, in the past we were just like this too. But as we grew older we realized we had to grow up and try and help our community in a positive way.” “Do other boys your age think like this too?” “No, they aren't thinking the way we are thinking, they still engage in these bad things. So that's why we do what we do, we're trying to inspire them to change too.” Meet a Stranger a day - http://365docobites.com 365 documentaries in 365 days - Strangers' short and shorter stories.
