As world cup fever gripped South Africa it was not just men and children who were playing football. A group of Gogo's, (Zulu for grandmothers) got together twice a week to train and play in Alexandra township in Johannesburg. As well as being a source of exercise the training is a welcome get together for many of the women who are now raising their grandchildren as a result of the HIV / Aids pandemic. The training session is run with the help of local NGO Ratang Bana (Future for children. ) Alexander Township. Johannesburg, South Africa.
