Atlantis, Cape Town – South Africa

Lavalla200>

This is a town some 20km outside of Capetown in South Africa.  It was developed in the apartheid era as an industrial centre to provide employment for ‘coloured’ people.  Investment has declined but the people have stayed on.  The Marist presence for the moment is one of collaboration with the local Church and NGOs working with the large number of children and youth in a variety of weekly activities and holiday camps.
