Grandmothers for a Better World


The Grandmother Collective is raising the profile of grandmothers as unique and essential contributors to social change. We work to equip grandmothers and older women so they can leverage their wisdom, experience, insights, and contributions to make impact around the world.

More than just a collective of grandmothers, we are a force for community level change, addressing societal challenges, promoting sustainability, and advocating for a world built on empathy and inclusivity. The Grandmother Collective seeks to rewrite the narrative of aging, proving that the later chapters of life are filled with purpose, impact, and a commitment to leaving the world better.
