Powered by Love: A Grandmothers’ Movement to End AIDS in Africa draws on hundreds of interviews with grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa, Canada, and the UK, to tell the story of this incredible movement from the perspective of grandmothers themselves. These stories help readers to understand the impact African grandmothers are having in the midst of the AIDS pandemic and to appreciate the power of the global grandmothers’ movement and how it grew.
