Harambee Lethbridge

The Harambee Grandmas are the local chapter of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign.

The foundation was created in 2003 to support community-based organizations working on the frontlines of the HIV and AIDS pandemic in 15 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign was launched in Canada in 2006 in response to the emerging crisis faced by grandmothers in Africa as they struggled to raise millions of children orphaned by AIDS.

Grandmothers groups, which now also have chapters in Australia, the UK, and the USA, raise funds in their communities for the life-enhancing programs run by grandmothers in Africa and the community-based organizations who support them.

The Harambee Grandmas' name comes from the Swahili word ‘harambee’ which means working together to make a difference.
