Jumping for a brighter future in Johannesburg

Alexandra is one of Johannesburg's most notorious neighbourhoods.

But one local sports club has been working hard to keep the local children out of trouble.

The Alexandra trampoline club sets up its trampolines in the street and encourages youngsters in the area to give the sport a try.

Some of the gymnasts have excelled and now represent South Africa in international competitions.
