We are a group of Red Deer and area grandmothers and "grandothers" that reach out to African grandmothers who are raising their grandchildren orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Africa has become a continent of orphans – 14.8 million and countless others left vulnerable, increasing their chances of contracting HIV. In the midst of this tragedy African grandmothers have stepped into the breech, burying their own children and raising their orphaned grandchildren with little assistance. GrammaLink-Africa members seek to support these brave African women by creating awareness of their struggle and sharing our resources through fundraising for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign.

Stride to Turn the Tide
Our Stride team of nine grammas, Go,Gagas,Go!, finished their fundraiser on June 30. To date, we have raised well over $5000.00 and collectively walked over 4000 kilometers. Thank you for your support! Money raised will support community-based organizations that are the critical support systems that communities need, and that are well positioned to adapt to the emerged challenges posed by COVID-19.
The Go,Gagas, Go! walked further than we thought we could, raised more money than we planned, inspired others and found serenity in being outside in the company of our fellow Grammas. Most of all, we appreciate your support!
Thank you for your support of our recent Coffee for a Cause event. Close to $500.00 was raised for the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Many thanks to Satinwood Coffee Company for partnering with us for this event.
