Grandmothers – “the unsung heroes of Africa”
Millions of African children have been orphaned because of AIDS and are being raised by their grandmothers. Grands ‘n’ More Winnipeg is a group of grandmothers and others who are part of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Our goal is to support the work of community-based organizations in sub-Saharan Africa who improve the lives of grandmothers raising their own and other orphaned grandchildren.
African grandmothers have said “We have lived through the enormity of AIDS in our communities, and have played our part in helping our nations survive the devastation. … We are the leaders in our communities and countries. …We will continue to stand in solidarity with one another throughout Africa and with our Canadian sisters. We are strong, we are visionary, we have faith and we are not alone.” (Manzini Statement, May 8, 2010)
Get To Know Us
Grands ‘n’ More Winnipeg was launched in October 2007, in response to what we had come to know about both the Stephen Lewis Foundation and its Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, whose mission is Awareness, Education, Outreach and Fundraising.
Although our group is part of a Campaign focused on grandmothers and their orphaned grandchildren in sub-Saharan Africa, from the beginning, we have been open to anyone. We are delighted to have attracted, not only grandmothers in our city, but also men and women who are not grandparents and who share our concern. Read more….Our History
