HOW THE CAMPAIGN BEGAN

Following the International Aids Conference 2006 in Toronto, grandmothers across Canada were moved by the African Grandmothers’ daily struggles to survive, their courage, and their positive attitudes.

When the Canadian Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign began it was about:

 Easing the pain

It then evolved to

 Turning the Tide of the HIV Aids pandemic

 Building resilience

 Restoring justice for Grandmothers across the continent
