We are part of a movement working to, "Turn the tide of HIV&AIDS in Africa." We're one of 250+ Canadian, (plus in 2017 in Australia, Great Britain and USA), groups of GrandMothers and GrandOthers, committed to contributing to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers (G2G) Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF).
SLF works in partnership with community-based organizations in Sub -Saharan Africa , "Turning the tide of AIDS in Africa"!  (Click here to learn about our beginnings and our beautiful logo.)

 Our objectives divider -African motif

1. To raise funds for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation 

2. To raise awareness in ourselves and in our community of the needs of African grandmothers and the grassroots work of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

3. To build solidarity among African and Canadian grandmothers in order to better understand and sustain the vital work being done to turn the "Tide of AIDS" in Africa.

Loving Hands

"We will not rest until they rest."
Canadian grandmothers' statement of commitment made at the birth of the
Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign
