My City Johannesburg

My City Johannesburg

Khanyisa Mhlongo has given the children in her building in Johannesburg a voice through helping them to write stories about their experiences of their city.

“The city is really a cool place to be mostly misunderstood. This story gives a person an overview of how the city functions and awesome culture!”


She works with children in her building as well as a photographer to capture the stories of the children.


“My name is Mpho and I am from the City, I call it my city Johannesburg. Today I will be walking you through the city with me so you can learn how I survive this so called bad city. Put on your shoes and let’s go into the busy and fast paced Jozi.” Except from Mpho’s story


Thank you to Khanyisa Mhlongo for submitting this Good Hood Story.
