Abstract

MANGOEDI, Leomile  and  MOGASHOA, Moraka H. Mission from the margins: A reflection on faith by "women" displaced or trafficked into forced labour in the City of Tshwane. Missionalia (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.42, n.1-2, pp.88-106. ISSN 2312-878X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7832/42-1-2-53.

This article is an engagement with a group of homeless women in the street of Tshwane. The Meal of Peace project, together with the Tshwane Leadership Foundation, seeks to engage with people on the margins of the city. It explores the economic challenges that expose women to trafficking. The article looks at how the women at TLF reflected on the faith of a servant girl in the story of 2 Kings 5:1-4.
