Unidentified children wake up in their one-roomed shack on July 11, 2001 in Site B in Khayelitsha, a township about 35 kilometers outside Cape Town, South Africa. About one million people live in this township, mostly in bad conditions. 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.
