As the number of whites in the country dwindled so did the facilities that used to entertain them. Caddies, grounds-men and their families live in buildings that were once part of a sports club adjacent to a still functioning golf course. Their extended family's built shacks around the structures and settled there too. Many of the children are parentless and are cared for by grandparents. Aids has devastated a generation. This shack houses eleven - an 89 year old blind woman and ten young adults and children. All of the children had lost at least one parent and only one of them goes to school. Nobody has a job so they survive by recycling rubbish from the nearby dumpsite.
