HIV/AIDS prevention and education
A vital focus of our work is the prevention of HIV/AIDS and support for children who are affected by it.

We want to tackle general poverty in the villages where our centres are based, educate children about HIV/AIDS, provide mobile clinics, support community care for children orphaned by AIDS, challenge prejudice against young people affected by HIV/AIDS, protect orphaned children from exploitation and abuse.

By developing projects like this, the foundation will be able to help communities to build a sustainable future, enabling them to become self-sufficient and giving them hope for their future. Monitoring and evaluation of all our current and future projects is carried out to assess the impact of the projects on the communities involved.
