Royal City Gogos
Gogo is a Zulu word for grandmother. The Royal City Gogos, based in New Westminster B.C., is part of a national movement of grandmothers and "grand others" that form the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. We fundraise in support of African grandmothers who are caring for a generation of children who have been orphaned by AIDS. These children are the hope of the continent.
We direct our fundraising to the Stephen Lewis Foundation because they put money directly into the hands of grassroots organizations that are working to turn the tide of AIDS in Africa.
