Tolamo Primary School. Reedview, North West Province. South Africa.
March 2012.

Gogos (grandmothers) bring wheelbarrows of sweets, chips, spatlho, and other snacks to the primary school everyday. Sweeping neat, geometric patterns in the dirt, they stake their claims between the jacaranda trees. They then settle down into their chairs or blankets to wait for hordes of schoolchildren bearing precious 1-, 2-, and 5-Rand coins to blow on junk food.
