Our aim is a world where people affected by HIV do not experience poverty, ill health and prejudice.
We therefore support people living with HIV/AIDS so they can play a central role in improving their own lives leading to permanent solutions.
Our organisation is built on four outcomes
PREVENTING the transmission of HIV
We promote condom use and other ways of stopping HIV infection through raising awareness around prevention campaigns such as conferences, outreach, workshops and others. We also open free confidential HIV testing centres in churches, market places, lorry stations and other community settings.
PROMOTING the benefit of early diagnosis
We know that HIV diagnosed early gives you more of an opportunity to manage the virus and prevent onward transmission.
We tackle HIV stigma through education
REDUCING poverty experienced by people living with HIV
Both in the UK and IN Ghana, people living with HIV are living in poverty due to the disease we therefore organise training events to empower them to acquire gainful employment and also supply food items to those who cant afford them..
Both in the UK and in Ghana, we lead in HIV education including support and empowerment programmes. We work with partner organisations to change lives of people living with HIV/AIDS and those affected by HIV and have won many local, national and International awards for our successes.
