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.
