Ten years in the making and linking grandmothers across continents, AFRICAN FOOD FOR THOUGHT is an ambitious, national initiative created to celebrate and support grandmothers of Sub-Saharan Africa who are raising their HIV/AIDS orphaned grandchildren against all odds. The book’s contents have been collected from and/or tested by African and Canadian grandmothers and “grand-others”, two African Ambassadors and several women from other African Embassies and High Commissions, and Desmond Tutu!


Proceeds from AFRICAN FOOD FOR THOUGHT: A Tribute to Grandmothers go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign to help “turn the tide of AIDS in Africa”.


This special book is finally here! For only $39.50 CAD you make AFRICAN FOOD FOR THOUGHT your own and at the same time, help create a meaningful difference in the lives of these heroic African Grandmothers.
