Many of Gugulethu residents migrated looking for work and opportunities to further their studies. Issues like lack of family support, communication and unity were the most shared feelings. Sadly many come from broken families, have lost family members and haven't managed to grief the loved ones, women having to be single parents while fathers are absent b choice or in jail..
