We are a group of Red Deer and area grandmothers and "grandothers" that reach out to African grandmothers who are raising their grandchildren orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Africa has become a continent of orphans – 14.8 million and countless others left vulnerable, increasing their chances of contracting HIV. In the midst of this tragedy African grandmothers have stepped into the breech, burying their own children and raising their orphaned grandchildren with little assistance. GrammaLink-Africa members seek to support these brave African women by creating awareness of their struggle and sharing our resources through fundraising for the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign.

The Grammas have been busy creating items to sell at our events. This year we have added items which reflect our respect for sustainability and the environment. Check out the merchandise below. You just might find a beautiful gift or an item for yourself.
Our choice is to honour the grandmothers, enfold the orphans in our arms, and support them to make all of their lives whole again. ~ Stephen Lewis
