Gogo is the Zulu word for Grandmas. In the midst of one of trips into the poverty areas we met a woman who had lost 5 out of 7 children to HIV/AIDS. She was HIV positive as well and caring for several grandchildren from the generation that was lost. We admired her extensive garden and then, as we were leaving, her 1 year old granddaughter waved bye-bye to us. Gogo clapped and raved about the little one’s accomplishment in a language any grandma could understand!
