Author Paola Gianturco Supports Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign

A community advocate, mindSCOPE Staffing and Recruiting Software CEO Daniel Duic enjoys supporting activities and events that promote well-being. A regular participant of the Terry Fox Run benefiting the Canadian Cancer Society, Daniel Duic also extends his charitable efforts overseas by contributing to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Named after Canadian Parliament member Stephen Lewis, the Stephen Lewis Foundation established the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign in 2006. In just eight years, the campaign has raised $19.5 million thanks to its dedicated group of African and Canadian grandmothers who volunteer time and money to support fellow grandmothers in Africa caring for children orphaned by AIDS. Currently, 240 active grandmother groups in Canada take part in the campaign.

In an effort to support the foundation’s initiative, award-winning author Paola Gianturco dedicates 100 percent of the royalties from her book Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. The book documents grandmother groups from around the world as they work to protect their culture and health, and shape the future of education and human rights.
