Biography

Grands ‘n’ More Winnipeg came into being in October of 2007.  We are one of over 240 groups of grandmothers and “grand-others” coast-to-coast in Canada.

We raise funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) which supports grassroots African projects in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa.  We seek to raise awareness so that Canadians will know more about the desperate situation many people in sub-Saharan Africa face in the wake of the AIDS pandemic.  Finally, we do advocacy work to encourage the enactment of laws and policies that will make life easier for the grandmothers and orphans.

Our membership is open to women and men of all ages from Winnipeg and environs.
