OUR REGIONAL GATHERING:
Ontario South and West Ontario Regional Gathering — September 29, 2018
Hamilton District Christian High School, 92 Glancaster Rd., Ancaster, ON
It was a wonderful day. Another great gathering. Our groups came together and shared ideas, resources, and we heard from the Stephen Lewis Foundation and our community-based partners.
From Carol, "We were thoroughly blessed with Josephine Nabukenya, who told us how young women are moving forward and taking control of their future. So inspiring!"
We thank our host, the Grandmothers of Steel.
4Gs are part of ON S & W. We were honoured to be host group in the fall of 2014. (See some photos.)
4Gs: Who we are
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.)
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."
Canadian grandmothers' statement of commitment made at the birth of the
Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign (Toronto 2006). During that time a deep and cherished bond of solidarity has grown between us!
