THE densely populated Alexandra township, borders and contrasts Sandton, the wealthiest suburb in South Africa. The sprawling township is characterised by scarcity of land, homelessness and a high rate of unemployment. But in recent years, the township, which is rich in history and is home to cultural icons, activists and sporting personalities, has been rejuvenated through the presidential Alexandra Renewal Project.
Alexandra Renewal ProjectThe Alexandra Renewal Project is a joint initiative between national, provincial and local government, the private sector, NGOs and community organisations. The project will be undertaken over 7 years. Visit the web site for more information: http://www.alexandra.co.za/index.htm
