Home

Oomama is a grassroots, volunteer organization, one of over 240 grandmother groups across Canada, involved in the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign led by the Stephen Lewis Foundation. We support Africa’s unsung heroes—grandmothers with the overwhelming burden of caring for their AIDS-orphaned grandchildren.

We have been inspired by the words of Stephen Lewis as well as his efforts to empower the grassroots organizations initiated by grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa. Oomamas are committed to helping turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa through awareness, education, and fundraising.

We will not rest until they can rest!
