Stephen Lewis Foundation

The Stephen Lewis Foundation is an organization founded by Stephen Lewis that assists mostly AIDS and HIV-related grassroots projects in Africa. Though on some occasions, the foundation has provided larger projects with money, it mostly gives funds to small, frontline groups and charities.

Goals

The foundation has four main goals:

  • To provide care at the community level to women who are ill and struggling to survive, so that their lives can be free from pain, humiliation and indignity
  • To assist orphans and other AIDS-affected children in every possible way, from the payment of school fees to the provision of food
  • To support the unrecognized heroes of Africa, the grandmothers, who bury their own children and care for their orphan grandchildren;
  • To support associations of people living with HIV/AIDS - courageous men and women who have openly declared their status.

Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign

The Grandmothers to Grandmothers is a campaign, launched on March 7, 2006, to raise awareness and support for African grandmothers within Canada.
