What we do

Ottawa Solidarity March 2010

Our advocacy is rooted in our understanding of the situation of grandmothers in Africa and vulnerable children and youth. We seek to influence the Canadian public and government and international audiences to respond to the human rights tragedy and devastation experienced by grandmothers and children in Africa.

GRAN advocacy can include many activities such as informing people about an issue, media campaigns, public speaking, publishing and sharing knowledge, informing and mobilizing others, communicating with elected officials, representing our issues at events and forums, posting position statements, and working with partners and coalitions on a particular campaign.
