GRAN LOGOGrandmothers Advocacy Network (GRAN)

 A number of grandmothers have involved themselves in advocacy work through GRAN, an independent organization and separate from SLF.
GRAN is a cross-Canada network of volunteers advocating at local, national and international levels.  They work to engage Canadian and international support for policies and programs that will address the needs of African grandmothers as they strive to sustain their families and communities in the wake of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.The focus of GRAN’s work is strategic and effective education and advocacy. GRAN participants take action to raise public awareness and influence policy-makers in three key areas:
>  Ensuring access to affordable medicines
>  Improving access to education
>  Ending violence against women and girls
