Arising out of and based on a pilot intervention project of the Albertina and Walter Sisulu Institute of Ageing in Africa, a nonprofit organisation called Grandmothers Against Poverty and AIDS (GAPA) was formed. <br>GAPA has been operating in Khayelitsha since October 2001. In that time the number of grandmothers participating in GAPA activities, namely workshops and psychosocial support groups, has been growing steadily. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the grandmothers are developing the capacity to cope with the effects of the AIDS crisis and are becoming empowered members of their communities.
