Celebrating 10 Years

The Stephen Lewis Foundation launched the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign in March 2006, in response to the emerging crisis faced by African grandmothers as they struggled to care for millions of children orphaned by AIDS. A decade later, the Campaign supports African community-based organizations that have developed programmes—with and for grandmothers—to transform lives and restore hope to their communities.

In ten years, more than $25 million has been raised. It’s been ten years of raising awareness in Canadian communities. Ten years of listening, learning and nurturing solidarity. Ten years of bearing witness to the expertise and resilience of African grandmothers all across sub-Saharan Africa.

African grandmothers are changing the course of the AIDS epidemic in their communities and beyond. And the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign is with them every step of the way.
