Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign
Sunshine Coast Grandmothers and Grand Others partner with African grandmothers who are raising a generation of children orphaned by AIDS. We raise funds, increase awareness about the challenges and successes of grandmothers in Africa, and build solidarity between African and Canadian grandmothers. We are part of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, an initiative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
African grandmothers are the centres of their communities. With few resources, they display astonishing reserves of love, courage, resilience and hope.
Through the support of Sunshine Coast Grandmothers and Grand Others, and more than 200 other such groups across Canada, grandmothers in 15 African countries can access: children's school fees and uniforms, adequate housing, skills training, home care visits, grief and trauma counselling, and micro credit grants for income generation. Working in community groups, African grandmothers identify their needs and the Campaign responds.
Since 2006, Canadians have raised more than $25 million for African grandmothers through the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. Our group has contributed more than $214,445.00 to this total.
We've almost always got something in the works, so keep an eye on our Events page!
