UJAMAA GRANDMAS works in Calgary, Alberta, as part of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, to raise funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Our Founders started small but had big ambitions and our contributions continue to grow each year and with each event. To the end of 2016, proceeds from our fundraising events and direct donations have enabled us to contribute more than $1,024,314.94 to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
