The Stephen Lewis Foundation’s AfriGrand Caravan is now on its way across Canada!
The AfriGrand Caravan is a cross-country tour with young African women orphaned by AIDS and grandmothers faced with an orphan care crisis in sub-Saharan Africa. The Caravan is travelling to 40 communities, from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Victoria, British Columbia, from September 7 to November 10, 2010. It is providing a forum for African women to tell their stories and engage thousands of Canadians in a meaningful dialogue about the grassroots response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.
Photos from the Atlantic Region leg of the Caravan, featuring grandmother Regina Mokgokong and granddaughter Nkulie Nowathe, both from Mamelodi, South Africa, are now on the Foundations’s Flickr page (as well as in a nifty slideshow at the top of this post). More photos and video from the Caravan are coming soon!
