An acrylic painting by one of the participating artists helps raise funds for grandmothers raising grandchildren in Malawi.

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook chapter of the Gogo Grandmothers Group, in conjunction with students from Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta and led by Rebecca White, raised a hullabaloo as well as money for Africa at the Fallbrook Coffee Company, March 7.

A group of students hangs out inside the Fallbrook Coffee Company during the Gogo Grandmothers Group fundraiser.

Artists from the group sold their paintings, vases and painted guitars. Musicians from the group played in the parking lot, while Mexican food was sold and Fallbrook's local businesses donated items for a silent auction like books and a mug from The Shop Around the Corner.

All the money went directly to a small village in Malawi called Chipayika for the gogos, which means grandmothers, who raise their grandchildren alone.

Gogo Grandmothers is a SAFE project which links grandparents and others from developed countries to grandparents caring for orphans in Malawi, thereby addressing one of the outcomes of the HIV/AIDS pandemic within a faith-based context. For more information visit http://www.gogograndmothers.com.

Anyone who would like information on how to get involved with the Fallbrook Gogo Grandmothers group and make a difference for those in need can call Anna White at (760) 419-0893.
