ANNOUNCING NEW GRANDMOTHERS CAMPAIGN INITIATIVE
Join Welcome & Information Calls
Starting in September on the third Monday of every month. The Grandmothers Campaign Team here at the Stephen Lewis Foundation will host conference calls to welcome you (or a friend of yours who is curious!) to the Campaign. We’ll speak to a range of topics including, how to join a group and exciting news about the Campaign, and we’ll take questions at the end.
The next (and first!) welcome call will be on Monday, September 17th at 12:30pm EST. If you would like to participate or have any questions, contact us directly at 1-888-203-9990 ext 0 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gatherings are a great way for groups to come together and share ideas, resources, and hear from the Stephen Lewis Foundation and our community-based partners.
4Gs are part of Ontarion South and West Ontario. We were honoured to be the host group in the fall of 2014. (See some photos.) and look forward to this year's Gathering hosted by Grandmothers of Steel.

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.
"We will not rest until they rest."
