Who We Are

The Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) works with grassroots organizations turning the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Since 2003 we have funded over 1100 initiatives, partnering with over 300 community-based organizations in 15 countries.

These grassroots groups are a lifeline for their communities: they provide education and counselling about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distribute food, medication and other necessities; reach into the homes of the sick and vulnerable through holistic home-based care; help children orphaned by AIDS and other vulnerable children gain access to education and cope with their grief; and support grandmothers, who are overwhelmingly the caregivers for their orphaned grandchildren. 

We exist to meaningfully collaborate on this important work, and to support the processes by which grassroots groups share ideas, strategize for change, and build unified networks across the African continent.
