Christine Penner is from Winnipeg, Manitoba and is the Assistant Superintendent at the Interlake School Division. She is working toward MDG 6: Combat HIV/AIDs, malaria and other diseases.

Christine founded Grannies Gone Global in Winnipeg’s North End, and that organization supports grandmothers in Uganda who are looking after grandchildren whose parents have died of AIDs. Christine is so pleased to see how the sustainable livelihoods that Grannies Gone Global helped to develop, are allowing so many Ugandan grandmothers to financially support themselves and their families.
