Oomama is a grassroots, volunteer organization, one of over 250 grandmother groups across Canada involved in the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign led by the Stephen Lewis Foundation. We support Africa’s unsung heroes—grandmothers raising grandchildren who have lost parents due to the HIV/AIDS crisis. Together, we are turning the tide of AIDS in Africa.


Oomama members have travelled all the way from Ethiopia to Botswana for the Halton-Peel Virtual Stride.  We are now walking back to Oakville and we are somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. So far we have covered 16,994 km!  There is still time to sponsor us.

The Halton-Peel Virtual Stride is a great alternative to a traditional walk. Participants register, buy pedometers, get pledges, and keep a log of distance covered. Set yourself a challenge to 'walk' to the Stephen Lewis Foundation's partner organizations in sub-Saharan Africa. Registration is $25 and log books are provided.
