We are raising money for African grandmothers! See all about our Virtual Stride Walk March 1-June 30, 2022.
Oomama is a grassroots, volunteer organization representing Mississauga and Oakville, Ontario; one of 170 grandmother groups across Canada, raising funds for 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 grandchildren whose parents died of AIDS. We will not rest until they can rest.
Visit Marketplace to find gifts for your friends and family and useful ones for yourself!
Fabric items: masks, bags of all kinds, beaded & netted jewellery are handmade by our crafty grandmothers. As part of our 'GoGreen' initiative, we have reusable products replacing plastic.
