12 year old Nontokozo, orphaned niece of the Makhowance family hold hands with her 11 year old cousin Thandeka. The seven brothers and sisters live together with their grandmother and Nontokozo in a little hut in the KwaMahowande tribal land of KwaZulu Natal. The grandmother is too old and frail to look after the family so the eldest daughter, 20 year old Phakamile, takes reponsibility for the whole family. Child-headed households such as this are becoming more common in South Africa, as the Aids epidemic continues to ravage the country.
