Grandmothers 4 Grandmothers Regina is pleased to offer a variety of merchandise for sale in the community. We choose to support the craftswomen of sub-Saharan Africa by acquiring products from grassroots organizations in Africa, whose members are creating products for sale. The income from the sale of these handcrafted items means that African women can put food on the table and send the children to school. Other items, such as bags and scarves, are made locally, often by our own talented members. All proceeds from these sales are donated to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers Campaign.
