How to Join Us
Whether you like to be in a group or prefer an individual approach, there are many ways to support the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. The Campaign goals are 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 pandemic in Africa;
- Build solidarity among African and Canadian grandmothers, and grandmothers abroad, in order to motivate and sustain the vital work of turning the tide of AIDS in Africa.
Following are some ways to support these goals.
