Our grandmothers are feeling so much love and appreciation. In December, over 200 grandmothers received 135 liter water harvesting tanks! We have a strong belief in ensuring our community has access to clean water to keep them safe and healthy. In addition to providing harvesting tanks, over the last 20 years, we’ve also built and maintained two gravity-fed water systems that serve thousands of families and reduce the spread of preventable waterborne illnesses.
In December, grandmothers also received their lunches from the grandmother focused fundraiser we held in September in celebration of Jackson's 50th birthday. Our goal was to make each of our grandmothers feel appreciated by treating them to lunch. Since the mandatory closing of our schools, due to COVID-19, almost eleven months ago, some of our grandmothers have been caring for as many as six grandchildren on their own 24/7 while managing their small businesses.
We are so grateful for your support because we reached our goal of making our grandmothers feel appreciated. Our grandmothers continuously feel your support in spite of the distance between you.
