Where we fund
GBB began funding small community based projects in Uganda in May of 2006. We are currently assisting two Grandmother’s Associations. The Associations serve more than 300 grandmothers.
Who we fund
GBB provides small grants to organizations who are caring for grandmothers and their grandchildren in Uganda, Africa.
We believe in, and have deep respect for, the ability, capacity, and wisdom of emerging grassroots women leaders across the globe, and of emerging elder grassroots women leaders from the Ugandan villages and associations that are part of GBB: Our efforts support Grandmothers:
To make decisions about what is best for themselves, their families, and their communities
To represent themselves and to speak for themselves with their own voices
We support grass roots projects which develop leadership, provide emotional support, food and basic necessities, and income generating initiatives.
Grandmothers who are members of a grandmother’s association may receive many different kinds of support. The grandmother above received funding through a micro-lending project to start a clothes mending business and a vegetable stand. She uses the money she earns to pay for basic necessities for her grandchildren.
