Find out more about our Grandmother Outreach Program below:
In Zambia, typically, extended families take on the responsibility of caring for their elderly. Because so many families have been affected by HIV/AIDS, many of the aged are left without caretakers. Our artists bring those elders to our attention so that we can offer our support. We add grandmothers or grandfathers to our program only as we get sponsorship for them. When one is sponsored, they immediately receive a mattress and blanket; monthly food stipends begin going home to them at the beginning of the next month.
Yes. You are most welcome to communicate via letter or email to our management team. However, our elderly speak very little English and are mostly illiterate. They will love hearing from you, but don’t be disappointed if you don’t receive a response. You will, however, receive an annual report on them, telling you about their life and health.
