On Tuesday, Prince Harry and wife Megan visit Waves for Change, an innovative charity that takes children out of the violent neighborhoods they live in and teaches them how to surf and, hopefully, how to heal.
Where they live is only a few kilometers away, but the contrast cannot be aged.
"It's better here because they shoot where we live," says 12-year-old Chloe, "They shoot, they rape people, they abuse people."
Between fifty and eighty children are brought to the beaches around False Bay for weekly sessions, first, they talk about their experiences in a kind of relaxed group therapy session – then they dress in wet suits and hit the waves.
Just separating from theirs an environment for them to be out of areas affected by gangs and crime is important, says Keane Adonis, a charity trainer.
"Things like violence fascinate them. As it happens with their next neighbor, happens next time. They are standing near the crime scene. They want to see what is happening. They want to know, "Is this lying to my friend?" he said.
Adonis says that children like Chloe who stick around to the program, are transformed.
"It helps me because we have manners here, we don't swear, we don't fight and they take care of us here," Chloe said.
