Tailoring in South Africa

Life is bustling as you walk around the communities on the outskirts of Johannesburg. I was on assignment with @uncommonway last year as they teamed up with @impactafrica to bring #hope into these #poor communities.

In a new and #unique environment like this, my attention is grabbed by every new scene around every corner. Getting to talk with this tailor about life in the community, about his family and the #dailystruggles he faces.

With #pride and #dignity he goes about his work, in the heat of his little wooden shack, to provide for his family.
