The Canadian Stephen Lewis Foundation was created by Stephen H. Lewis and his daughter Ilana Landsberg-Lewis in 2003[1], with the express purpose of putting money directly in the hands of community-based organizations working on the frontlines of the AIDS pandemic in Africa. Since 2003, they have funded over 1700 initiatives, partnering with over 325 community-based organizations in the 15 countries that have been hardest hit by the AIDS pandemic in Africa, including Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, according to their own statements.[2]


Since 2003, the Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) has been delivering resources directly into the hands of the community-based organizations (CBOs) that are turning the tide of HIV & AIDS in Africa. Led by grassroots experts in the more than 325 CBOs with which the SLF partners, over 1700 innovative and inspiring initiatives have been successfully undertaken—with astounding and tangible impact—in the 15 African countries hardest hit by the pandemic. We know from experience that in order to effect positive and lasting change, it is critical to support committed organizations at the community-level that are working to improve the lives of those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS in their communities.
