Stride To Turn The Tide - Stride To Turn The Tide 2019
Mountain Grannies

Support Our Team

This spring, we Mountain Grannies are taking part in Stride to Turn the Tide for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

We stride in solidarity with African grandmothers who walk, every day, for every imaginable reason. They walk to harvest their crops. They walk from home to home to comfort the ill and isolated. They walk to market to sell vegetables and crafts. They walk to pick up their grandchildren from school. They walk to collect water from a distant well. They walk to property tribunals to take back their land. They walk to their counselling groups. And over time – with ten years of support – African grandmothers are now recognized as community experts and vital agents of change in their communities.

In the midst of the AIDS pandemic, the grandmothers of Africa are an inspiration. That's why we are walking and have a fundraising goal. If you would like to contribute, please click on the 'Donate Now' button above the thermometer. It’s simple, fast and totally secure. Every dollar will make a difference to the grandmothers of Africa and the children in their care.  Thank you!
