Education

The purpose of the Speakers/Education Committee is to raise awareness about the strengths and needs of the African grandmothers, the caregivers of the grandchildren orphaned by AIDS.

Through presentations and workshops, our committee reaches out to service clubs, social clubs, businesses, faith communities and schools, with particular concentration on developing a global consciousness.

To book a speaker, or for more information, please contact Rita Hutton huttonrita@gmail.com or Pat McKee patmckee.ot@gmail.com

Our morning meetings are the first Tuesday of the month from September to June. We welcome new members

“HIV/AIDS is a tragedy far beyond the comprehension of most high school students but the Oomamas were able to present the reality of the facts within the face of family - Grandmothers who are there for their orphaned grandchildren, who love and nurture them no matter how dire the circumstances.  The PJ's are grateful for the role models provided by grandmas like our own and thank the Oomamas for their passion and caring for such an important cause.”
