Since retirement, for 10 years she has been very active in the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis foundation. With a friend, she started the Richmond Gogos (gogo being the Zulu word for grandmother). She co-chaired the 25 groups of the Greater Van Gogos, and was a Canadian delegate to the first International African Grandmothers Gathering in Swaziland. Presently she is helping to launch the Campaign into the United States.
