Guelph GoGo Grandmothers (4Gs)
4Gs: Who we are:
We are one of 250+ Canadian 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.)
What we do:
We pool our unique resources: – time, money, talents and passions - through our activities of fundraising, education and advocacy.
All proceeds donated to the Grandmothers Campaign, an initiative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation:
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.
