The red bead represents AIDS, the black bead, death, and the heart is a gogo caring for orphaned children. The three sand cast beads represent three orphans a typical gogo cares for. The cross symbolizes the love of Jesus for the gogos and orphaned children. The green beads represent a gogo’s garden and yellow bead, the maize she grows.

The “O” (for orphan) bead represents the village Early Childhood Development Centers where trained caregivers feed and educate vulnerable children. The clay bead symbolizes the handmade bricks used to build homes and an ECDC center. The silver beads represent our prayers and love for one another.

Gogograndmothers is a non-profit ministry of SAFE-Africa. We provide food security, educational opportunity and spiritual hope to a village gogo and the orphans in her care through sponsorships ($30/month) and fundraising. The story bracelet is one of the things we sell to spread the word and raise funds. More information about our ministry can be found at Gogograndmothers.com.
