Talk: Grandmothers to Grandmothers

Grandmothers to Grandmothers in Zambia and South Africa

Join Seymour area resident Jeanette Froese for a talk and slide presentation about her experience with fellow grandmothers from Canada and Australia traveling to Zambia and South Africa to visit ‘Grandmothers to Grandmothers’ project sites.

Jeanette has been part of the Grandmother to Grandmother organization for almost ten years. She, along with about 240 grandmothers and grandothers groups across Canada, help raise funds to support Grandmothers in Subsaharan Africa raising grandchildren orphaned by AIDS. All funds raised are sent to the Stephen Lewis Foundation which distributes them at a grass roots level directly to the projects in Africa.  Since 2006, the beginning of the Grandmother to Grandmother groups, we have raised  over $22 million.
