The 10 for 10 Initiative

2016 was the 10 Year Anniversary of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, launched in 2006 in response to the emerging crisis faced by African grandmothers.

The Grandmothers Campaign continues to mark 10 years of raising awareness in Canada and abroad about the AIDS pandemic and the indispensable work of community-based organizations. Ten years of fundraising, now more than $24 million, to meet the needs of African grandmothers and the children in their care. 10 years of learning and building solidarity for the expertise and leadership of African grandmothers.

The grandmother-led 10 for 10 Initiative challenges you, as Grandmothers Campaign supporters, to donate $10 a month in honour of the 10 Year Anniversary of the Grandmothers Campaign. Your monthly donation will provide reliable and long term funding to our community-based partners working with and for grandmothers. (If you are already a monthly donor, you can participate by increasing your donation by $10).

African grandmothers are changing the course of the pandemic in their communities and beyond. And the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign is with them every step of the way.

Be part of the history. Help us build the movement.
