  4. Be in agreement with the Gogo Grandmothers Statement of Purpose.

  5. Enroll with us as an chartered Gogo Grandmothers Partner. As a "Partner" you commit to 1) praying regularly for the gogos, and 2) carrying out one special fundraiser (or more) each year. Click here to download a Partner Agreement form.

    The enrollment cost is $35. When we receive your "Partner Agreement" form, we will promptly send your Partner's Kit containing the following:
  • Your framed partner Partner Certificate. It is beautiful enough to display in your home (or office) as a daily reminder to pray for the gogos and to stimulate conversations as others notice it.

  • A t-shirt bearing the Gogo Grandmothers logo

  • An embroidered Gogo Grandmothers patch

  • A package of Gogo Grandmothers note cards

    • A small dinner party given in homes. Charge a "per plate" donation and give the proceeds to support Gogo Grandmothers and the orphans of AIDS. During the evening share about the ministry.

    • A large dinner with an African theme, where tables are sold for a donation. We'll provide a Power Point show you can share, using your computer (projector optional) or show on your TV screen.

    • Auction of donated items from the community to benefit Gogo Grandmothers and the orphans

    • Hold a yard sale to benefit Gogo Grandmothers and the orphans of AIDS

    • Hold a crafts sale

    • Have a bake sale

    • Collect donations (in exchange for a minature Maize bag made by the gogos)
