From the Inside Flap

"We will never give up because this grandmothers' movement is powered by love." -- from the South Africa Grandmothers' Statement

In 2006, the Stephen Lewis Foundation launched a campaign to engage Canadian grandmothers to support their African sisters. The Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, now a movement 10,000 strong, has raised over $25 million that has gone directly into the hands of African grandmothers and the grassroots organizations supporting them at the frontlines of the AIDS pandemic.

Powered by Love tells the compelling story of these indomitable women and a movement that now reaches around the globe.
