The Nyanya Project empowers grandmothers to keep their families together in the face of AIDS devastation. We help African grandmothers form working cooperatives that generate the income necessary to provide healthcare, education and a loving home for their grandchildren. After being trained to care for HIV-infected family members and reinvest income, the grandmothers become role models for other women in their communities. This sustainable model allows the grandmothers to become independent and ensures continued care for their families.
