A part of Langa township known as Langa Quarter, an area of 13 streets with about 500 homes, has been turned to an environment conducive to global investment and economic partnership.
This is according to Tony Elvin who runs non-profit organisation, Ikhaya le Langa.
Ikhaya le Langa is a non-profit organisation aimed at revitalising South African townships and has recently partnered with Airbnb.
Elvin says for the past 18 months they've been working on equipping 10 women with skills to offer services to an international marketing looking to experience the black culture and the township lifestyle.
The women have now graduated and ready to put their new skills into practice.
He says so far they have hosted about 300 guests and looking forward to hosting more.
They've all had bookings and very excited. People are embracing the quarter and can see beyond some tags and labels that get wrongly associated with black communities.— Tony Elvin of Ikhaya le Langa
