Have you ever been curious to see what life is like in a township?  Then don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to go on a CAST Township Tour!  We look forward to hosting you on a tour where you can see some of the communities in which we minister.

This tour aims to give participants a rich understanding of the history, culture and people of these communities and how they are tied to the surrounding suburbs and city. We focus on the role of churches, missions, schools and businesses, past and present, while also experiencing the culture and meeting interesting people.

There are two tour options:

Experience the best of cultural diversity in “Durbs” by checking out the famous Warwick Indian Market, while also learning more about the historical roots of the Apartheid Struggle through Cato Manor’s local museum, as well as current development work and the ministry of CAST in the ever-evolving township of Chesterville.

Clermont, KwaDabeka & Mariannridge (Wednesday 9am-4:30pm)

If you’ve ever wondered what everyday life is like in a township, this is the tour for you!  Come join our CAST team for home visits to meet local families in Clermont & KwaDabeka, as well as visiting local schools to meet the youth.  In Mariannridge, take a walk through this small community to meet locals and hear more about the issues facing this township.  Learn more about CAST’s programmes and partnerships in these communities.
