G.A.P.A. Grandmothers Against Poverty and Aids

We spent a very exciting and "upBEAT" Friday morning dancing with the gogos (Xhosa mean. grandmothers) in Khayelitsha.
"Sofire" our Zumba instructor not only gave us his time, but shared his contagious positive energy. All of us including the Sisanda staff joined in and got our bodies moving. What a fun way to keep healthy!
The ladies were loving it, especially, because the instructor combined African song with western Zumba beats.

The session came to an end with soothing stretching exercises. The graceful and ladies took a seat on their red chairs and shared their experience with us. One of them said it reminded her of being young and agile. Many said that they wished they could do this regularly.

Let's see what Sisanda can do...
