An unidentified barber wait for customers in his shop on July 5, 2001 in Site C Khayelitsha, a township about 35 kilometers outside Cape Town, South Africa. The township has about one million people living there. Khayelitsha is one of the poorest and fastest growing townships in South Africa. People usually come from the rural areas in Eastern Cape province to find work as maids and laborers. Most people don't find work and the unemployment rate is very high.
