Dear Friends of GBB,

On every visit to the Ugandan grandmothers of the GBB associations, we hear them say: You did not forget us. Through the years and the distance, the connection of the heart that supports and uplifts the grassroots elder women leaders and their communities has never wavered.

Thank you for remembering them on Giving Tuesday, and for being part of their story – and ours.

With gratitude and appreciation from all of us at GBB MKE/Uganda!

In honor of our grandmothers of Uganda who persevere to provide for their families and better their communities.

Our Mission

Grandmothers Beyond Borders helps to lift the burden of HIV/AIDS in Uganda, Africa by funding grass roots community based projects that provide support and care to grandmothers raising their grandchildren because their own children have died from AIDS.
“How will we ever explain what we have wrought? What a universe this is. We came out of the Holocaust asking ourselves how we could ever live with the recognition that much of the world knew what was in those trains rumbling down the tracks to Auschwitz. We came out of Rwanda asking ourselves how it was possible that the world was inert in the face of a hideous genocide that everyone knew was taking place. It is my contention that years from now, historians will ask how it was possible that the world allowed AIDS to throttle and eviscerate a continent, and overwhelmingly the women of that continent, and watch the tragedy unfold, in real time, while we toyed with the game of reform.”-Stephen Lewis
