Voices from the street


Tom and Sikhumbuzo share stories from the streets and tell how, inspired by Steve Biko’s black consciousness movement, South African street children are creating a new future for themselves and those living on the streets of Durban.

Tom Hewitt is Amos Trust’s international street children director and has worked extensively among street kids in South Africa. Sikhumbuzo Mazhubela is a former street child from Durban. After being stabbed by his mother, he lived much of his childhood on the streets of downtown Durban, where he was faced with terrible poverty, violence and abuse.
