"We will not rest until they can rest"
The G-Moms of Port Perry are part of the “Grandmother-to-Grandmother” campaign, which works in partnership with grandmothers in Africa who are raising their orphaned grandchildren due to the AIDS pandemic.
We are a grassroots organization who work locally to help the women and children in Africa through the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
G-Moms of Port Perry have raised to date over $356,ooo for the Stephen Lewis Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign.
We work hard to raise awareness and money so that Grandmothers in Africa can become self-sufficient and children can eat and go to school.
One of the proudest achievements is that our group was able to send three representatives to Africa to see how the Steven Lewis Foundation really works. This has had a profound effectbringingnew energy and awareness to the group.
Dedication, Understanding, Acceptance, Inclusion and Celebration are key to the success of our group. This is combined with cohesive team work and dedication to the foundation and to each other.
Meetings & Events
We meet monthly at the Port Perry Villa at 7pm. We are open to new ideas and welcome all thoughts. We organize various events to raise money and awareness.
We welcome all Grand-mothers and Grand-others to join. We appreciate whatever time and energy you have to offer but also understand that there are times when you cannot be as involved.
