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 partner with like-minded organizations to amplify our voices and increase our impact.
