Funds raised by UJAMAA GRANDMAS go to support the work of the Stephen Lewis Foundation to help AIDS orphans and their caregivers, often grandmothers, in Africa.
To learn about the funded projects and how decisions are made check the Foundation web site.
There are approximately 240 Grandmothers to Grandmothers groups across the country.
GRAN encourages and provides tools and information to help individuals to advocate with government on issues that affect grandmothers and AIDS orphans in Africa. For example, Bill C-398 which seeks to reform the Canadian Access to Medicines Regime is now before Parliament and GRAN is mounting a campaign to support passage of this bill.
Learn more about what they do at their web site.
GRAN is on no way affiliated with the Stephen Lewis Foundation, the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign or UJAMAA GRANDMAS. Learn more about the relationship between GRAN and the Stephen Lewis Foundation HERE.
