Pressing Times in Africa will take place at Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 5. The Oneness Gogos, the Ubuntu Ogogo Group and the South Surrey Soul Sisters – among more than 20 grandmother groups hosting the event – aim to galvanize support for African grandmothers who are raising an estimated 14.8 million children who have been orphaned by the AIDS pandemic.

Saturday’s event will feature a marketplace with handmade crafts produced by Oneness Gogos, the South Surrey Soul Sisters and fair trade African cooperatives. For more, visit www.greatervangogos.org or call Donna McBride at 604-536-9510.
