Be Part of This Extraordinary Effort
Grandmothers groups are tremendously active... and beloved.... in their communities! They are creative and passionate fundraisers - putting on concerts, organizing card tournaments, and selling jewellery. They visit countless schools and community organizations. They organize community dinners, paint, write, bake, cook, sew, knit, ride hundreds of miles in cycle tours, organize walks, and even ride motorcycles – all to raise funds and awareness for grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa.

Members of the Campaign work to:

Raise funds to meet the needs of African grandmothers and the children in their care;

Listen to African grandmothers, respect their expertise and amplify their voices, in order to promote authentic and substantive responses to the epidemic in Africa; and

Build solidarity among African and grandmothers worldwide in order to motivate and sustain the vital work of turning the tide of AIDS in Africa.
Where Does Your Money Go and Who Does It Support?
The Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign has already raised $27 million that has gone directly to African community-based organizations run by and for grandmothers - who are experts in what grandmothers need to overcome the ravages of AIDS - from emotional support groups to income generation, HIV education, health care and getting orphaned children back into school. 

The Grandmothers Campaign U.S.A is part of an international grandmothers' movement. The hub of that movement is in Canada, with the Stephen Lewis Foundation in Canada. For 14 years, the Foundation has been partnering with over 300 community-based organizations on more than 1,600 initiatives in Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
Powered By Love: A Grandmothers' Movement to End AIDS in Africa
We thought we knew what was happening in Africa when the AIDS pandemic raged across the continent, sweeping away 35 million lives. But we never knew it the way this book reveals it, in the shockingly intimate voices of the grandmothers who stepped in to raise their orphaned grandchildren when no one else was left alive.

A dynamic movement of grandmothers rallied in response.   Starting in Canada and spreading across the globe, it now encompasses thousands of grandmothers on several continents.  Together, resolute grandmothers in Africa and around the world are reclaiming hope and courageously saving lives.  Their voices will leap straight into your heart.  Their unguarded faces, in portraits that glow with character, pain and humour, will captivate you.

Powered by Love reveals the compelling journey of these indomitable women and a movement that now reaches around the globe, sharing their story in their own words.
