Brews on Tues: Grannies Aid for Africa

April 30 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

Grannies Aid for Africa is a group of women from Hudson and the surrounding area, who support the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, an initiative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.  We organize events and activities to raise funds to help numerous grassroots organizations support women, children orphaned by AIDS, grandmothers, LGBTIQ communities and people living with HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.  Together, we wish to build a future free from AIDS.

About the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign

The Stephen Lewis Foundation is a progressive, feminist organization rooted in the principles of social justice, international solidarity, and substantive equality. The SLF was created with the express purpose of supporting community-led organizations working on the frontlines of the HIV epidemic in countries across sub-Saharan Africa.

When the HIV epidemic swept across the continent of Africa, it took the lives of nearly an entire generation – 35 million perished – which left their children alone and vulnerable. With little or no support, it was the grandmothers of Africa who stepped in to care for these children.

The Stephen Lewis Foundation launched the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign in 2006, in response to the emerging crisis faced by grandmothers in Africa as they struggled to raise millions of children orphaned by AIDS.

Grandmothers and grandothers in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States have rallied in response, creating a dynamic movement. They raise funds in their communities to support the life-enhancing programs run by grandmothers in Africa and the community-led organizations who support them.

The grandmothers movement amplifies the voices and expertise of grandmothers in Africa, and shows the world that leadership by older women is critical in reclaiming hope and rebuilding resilience across communities.
