GRANs may be disappointed that last week’s budget provided no increase to Official Development Assistance (ODA), but we remain persistent and optimistic, remembering the words of Mahatma Gandhi:
“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. .. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”

Our goal continues to be ensuring that Canadian government supports policies and programs that improve living conditions for African grandmothers and their communities.
