The Kamloops CanGo Grannies are inviting the public to a free presentation by Idah Mukula, senior advisor to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, this Saturday at 1 p.m. at St. Paul’s Cathedral, which is downtown at Nicola Street and Fourth Avenue.
Mukula, a grandmother from Zambia, will talk about her experiences as a field representative of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
She works with a variety of grassroots grandmothers groups to improve the lives of the grandmothers and the grandchildren they are raising.
The grandmothers are raising their grandchildren due to the loss of the kids’ mothers to the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
In addition, the CanGo Grannies are hosting other grandmother groups from the B.C. Interior to a Gathering of Grandmothers on Friday and Saturday.
Those interested in joining the group or finding out more about it are welcome to attend.
