A bowl of food sits on the table in the Makhowance family home in the KwaMahowande tribal land of KwaZulu Natal. 20 year old Phakamile Makhowance takes care of her seven siblings, grandmother and orphaned niece by putting food on the table. She is lucky enough to have all the necessary papers entitling her to claim child support grants for her four youngest siblings, which has to feed all nine members of the family. Child-headed households such as this are becoming more common in South Africa, as the Aids epidemic continues to ravage the country.
