The Grandmothers Campaign is an initiative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation

Starting in 2018, a group of Grannies met regularly to discuss books set in Africa, most of which were by African authors. Starting in 2023 we have expanded our scope to include books that deal with social equality issues supported by the SLF such as, defending human rights and equality for women and the LGBTQ community.

Glacier Grannies celebrate 15 years of empowering grandmothers in Africa

In 2022, the Glacier Grannies celebrated 15 years of supporting and empowering African grandmothers. Click here for an article, written by Heather M., which was printed in the Comox Valley Record on November 9th, reminding local residents of our mission and thanking them for their support over the years. You will also find a tweet from the Stephen Lewis Foundation and a link to the newspaper article.

 About Us 

We are a determined, passionate, resourceful and fun group. Some of us are grandmothers, and some are ‘grand others.’

Fundraising is done through events such as our yearly African dinner and silent auction, and by making and selling crafts at local fairs throughout the year. Many of our members enjoy working together to make AIDS Angels, felted pictures and animals, or Christmas swags. Others prefer to work on crafts individually, or are happier organizing events, selling our wares at craft fairs, or undertaking administrative tasks. We encourage creative ideas for new events.
