The North Bay Grandmothers for Africa is a chapter of Grandmothers to Grandmothers of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.  Our mission is twofold:

To raise awareness and engage Canadians in the struggle to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa

To raise funds to support the projects of African grandmothers in their struggle to care for their orphaned grandchildren.  


In September 2008, a small group of friends founded our chapter and introduced it to the public with the help of Marianne Beer of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Since then North Bay Grandmothers have raised over $61,890 for Grandmothers for Africa.  Click on the Fund Raising tab above for details.

Below are thank-you notes North Bay Grandmothers received in August 2017 from the Grandmothers Campaign Team and from Regional Director Asmita Persaud for our 2015 fundraising efforts:

In May 2010 we sponsored Suzanne Brooks, a local grandmother, as one of 40 Canadian grandmothers at the First African Grandmothers Conference in Swaziland.  To view some of Suzanne's photos click here.

Suzanne will be making a presentation of her recent (2015) trip to Uganda representing Canadian Grandmothers at the May 25 fashion show. 

You can find more information about the Grandmothers event in Uganda by visiting the fall 2015 edition of Grassroots.  Go to stephenlewis.org. There you can sign up for your own copy of Grassroots.
