Grandmother to Grandmother (2009)

Only available in Canada, United States

In sub-Saharan Africa, AIDS is wiping out a generation of parents, leaving 13 million orphans behind. A similar thing is happening in cities all across America. AIDS, drugs and violence are wiping out a generations of parents, leaving millions of children behind. Grandmothers, often impoverished themselves, are rescuing the children and struggling to raise them.

This film introduces two outstanding projects – one in the Bronx, one in Tanzania. The founders of these projects are finding simple and effective ways to support grandmothers who are raising grandchildren. Children who were “at risk” are now thriving. Grandmothers who felt hopeless are beginning to hope again.

This documentary is an inspiring call to support our elders, reminiscent of Desmond Tutu's global work with The Elders. Their voices are needed in every part of the world!
