Responsible Tourism - Community Projects
Since some years back Lebo’s Soweto Backpackers are working with a greening project which is to develop a park located right outside the Backpacker and in the middle of our community. It started as a clean up campaign where Lebo and the youth in the area turned a former dump site to a clean and litter / dumping free space. Trees were then planted and benches were put in the park. A soccer field developed and today young people in the community can enjoy a green, clean park where sports and other after school activities are organised. The park also hosts youth events for the community.
