Tikun Olam Gogos are a volunteer group of grandmothers in Vancouver who raise funds for the Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. We raise awareness and build solidarity to support African grandmothers who are raising their grandchildren, orphaned by the AIDS pandemic. Net proceeds from sales help fund community-based organizations in 15 sub-Saharan countries that support African grandmothers and their grandchildren.
