Granny Educational Trip to Africa

In February 2008, a delegation of twelve Canadian grandmothers from seven provinces traveled to Uganda, South Africa and Swaziland to visit SLF-funded projects firsthand and meet with African grandmothers and their orphaned grandchildren living in communities struggling with HIV & AIDS.  The delegates were all part of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign,  which raises awareness and funds for grandmothers in Africa through the Stephen Lewis Foundation. On March 8 – the two-year anniversary of the Campaign – the twelve grandmothers took part in a solidarity march with 1,000 grandmothers and women in Swaziland to mark International Women’s Day.

Upon their return to Canada, each woman dedicated a year to public speaking and community outreach and education. Click here to learn more about the Grandmothers Campaign.
