"Grandmothers have emerged as the unrecognized heroes of Africa. These magnificent caregivers bury their own children and look after their orphan grandchildren, calling on astonishing reserves of love and emotional resilience; but do so with almost no support." [Stephen Lewis, Chair of the Board of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, author of Race Against Time and the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa.]

These words inspired a group of women to gather to listen and to respond to the struggles of African Grandmothers coping with the HIV/AIDs crisis.

Proceeds of all fundraising events will be donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
