Educational and Social Reform South Africa Photos and Captions by Sarah Dennis Soon after arriving in Cape Town, we visited Robben Island, most famous for the prison that held Nelson Mandela and so many anti-apartheid political activists captive during the long fight for freedom.
The Island served as a prison as early as the mids, a hospital for leprosy patients and the mentally and chronically illand a training and defense station in World War II especially to train women and blacks in secret.
This limestone quarry was where the prisoners did their hard labor. Though the stone was soft, the limestone reflected light, damaging their eyes, absorbed heat, making it unbearably hot, and produced dust particles that caused many respiratory problems.
We traveled to a rural area in the north of the country for very unique experiences staying with families. Some families introduced students to the Chief of the village; some saw natural wonders of the region such as a baobab tree probably between and years old ; some attended traditional South African funerals; some saw traditional dancing at a local school; and some shopped.
He said he was taught that the white police were there to protect him and all the people from immigrants from Zimbabwe, just across the border to the north. Though a small portion of the experience was spent with wild animals, we visited lions at game park, and saw zebras, elephants, a giraffe, wild buffalo, hippos, impala, kudu, monkeys, crocodiles, and more during our visit to Kruger National Park the size of Wales!

Luckily my little, yelp, of surprise scared him away. We visited the former home of Nelson Mandela, in Soweto, which though it had been firebombed in and the interior was a recreation, the four pairs of boots on the trunk in front of the window were authentic.
One pair he had worn "on the run", and one pair he wore the day he was released from prison.
One pair he wore for the one day on Robben Island when the journalists and photographers came to report on the conditions. Only on that one day the political prisoners were given long pants and shoes and allowed to sew to distinguish them from the common law criminals who stayed bare feet wearing shorts who crushed limestone.
Imagine not being allowed long pants or shoes in the winter usually 60ss during the day and in the 40s at night, with no heat. Many children were orphans who had lost both parents to AIDS.
The teachers seemed very dedicated and tried to do their best, including the small group math activity where the children were adding and subtracting with old beer bottle caps. For the educators in the group, this was a highlight of the trip. The last week e.
