Who are we?
We are a non-partisan network of volunteers working together across Canada to advocate at local, national and international levels 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.
