Irene and Elvis
Irene works as a cleaner in our house. She is an honest hard worker and the only provider for her two teenage sons. She has a hard life, lives in Masipumelele township with her two boys.
I enjoy the talks with Irene, she is a wise woman with many hard years behind her, but she never gives up, doing her best for her children. Her arms are hanging because she is tired from all the hard work. She’s wearing red trainers that she got from another employer.

Elvis is our gardener/painter/handyman. A very hard working and positive man. He loves to listen to Cape Talk while he works, he takes his radio with him wherever he’s working throughout the day. Elvis enjoys a chat, he is a very open, friendly and social guy. He’s wearing clothing received from another employer.
