The prime purpose of being four is to enjoy being four - of secondary importance is to prepare for being five

Wellness Workshops with Core Fit

Wellness Workshop #1
Often grandmothers are the ones holding families together who are affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty in SA. GAPA "Grandmothers Against Poverty and AIDS" (est. 2001) started as a self help project in Khayelitsha, offering educational and psychosocial support for the older generation.

On Friday we invited 14 of these lovely gogos (grandmothers) to an afternoon of High Tea at the Clarendon guest house, Fresnaye. Nicci our host was so kind to offer us her beautiful guest house as a venue in which we could connect and appreciate our gogos. It was an ambient afternoon with delicious cakes, sandwiches, teas and coffee and of course lively chatter and singing!

Robyn, the vivacious and warm-hearted owner of "Core Fit", introduced our gogos to her upcoming Wellness Workshops. The needs of the gogos will determine the structure of the workshops. These workshops will be focused on self-awareness and self-care. Reminding them not to forget about themselves whilst taking care of everyone else.

Later they received gift bags in which they found refreshing Bodyshop products, a beautiful Emthunzini sun-hat, a bandana and Future Life food sachets.

Then the beautiful and inspiring gogos sang us a heartfelt song before making their way back to their families in Khayelitsha.

Thank you to our dedicated sponsors: Truworths and National Lottery Commission
