The Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign is a dynamic movement of thousands of grandmothers and grandothers, belonging grandmothers groups across Canada … and beyond! New groups have now formed in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
“It’s quite extraordinary to see the bond that
has developed between grandmothers on both sides of the ocean. In a dramatic
way, it helps to redefine the chasm between developed and developing nations.
It goes without saying that the chasm exists in the realms of poverty, conflict
and disease, but in the realms of sophistication, intelligence and fundamental
human decency, nothing separates the African grandmothers from the Canadian
grandmothers. They are as one.”
