Grandmothers Advocacy Network (GRAN)
Who are we?
We are volunteers working together across Canada to advocate in meaningful and strategic ways for the human rights of grandmothers, vulnerable children and youth of Sub-Saharan Africa.
What do we do?
- We educate to raise public awareness and invite engagement.
- We advocate to influence national and global policy-makers.
- We partner with like-minded organizations to amplify our voices and increase our impact.
