Programs

PROGRAM-1 Name of the Project: Institutional Care Home Target Area : Hyderabad and Neighbor Districts Target Group : The organization focuses on disadvantaged children emphasizing on HIV+ve victims, children abandoned by one or both parents, children of sex workers, truck drivers and children who have been abused and belong to poor socio economic conditions. Aims & Objectives: This project aims to effort for the health development and well-being of Children Living with HIV/AIDS (CLHAs). Goal of the Project: Goal of the project is to make these children happy as long as they can live on this earth by providing comprehensive care under institutional care centre. Supporting Agency : Individual donors and few business associates Activities: In India many places with a high prevalence of HIV, efforts to provide care and support for AIDS orphans have been underway for many years. Although existing initiatives are encouraging, many of these are small scale and are struggling with the increasing number of children that require care mainly in high-prevalence states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharastra and Tamilnadu. In order to develop a comprehensive and sustainable response to children, DESIRE Society has been initiated a project which is committed to provide services of treatment, nutrition, shelter and education with moral support to Children Living with HIV/AIDS (CLHA). Now the organization is able to support up to 60 children under this project. Activities of the Project: Shelter and Food Health Care Education and Moral Support Social Security Monitoring & Evaluation: Once a child is admitted at centre he will be under medical observation by health care team. Drug adherence has more priority in this program, because unless a patient takes ART regularly he can not find result of it. Each child will be maintained a separate file with precise code. Orphans and neglected children will be given preference to bring them on facilities. A five member review committee will evaluate the program chronologically and advise the team to work more effectively. Medical officer of concern project site is the in-charge for the treatment part and he is responsible for the entire clinical services of the program. The medical staff will work under his/her guidelines and supervision. Number of Beneficiaries: 65 Children Outcome: By offering these services will enable the stigma free environment among the children suffering with HIV/AIDS. Therefore, this will reduce the stigma associated with the HIV disease in our society. While treating their opportunistic infections and offering them proper nutrition will also enable them to attend the school regularly and psycho-support (counseling) can impact on children to adopt good behaviour. In addition this support will strengthen the positive thinking to lead happy life among CLHAs. PROGRAM- 2 Name of the Project: Child Nutrition and Health Care Target Area: Medak District , Andhra Pradesh Target Group: Children Living with HIV/AIDS Aims & Objectives: Aim of this project is to increase the immunity levels of the children by offering them proper nutrition and health monitoring Goal of the Project: To expand the life expectancy Supporting Agency: Individual donors and few business associates Activities: Since pediatric formulations were not available, majority of the children living with HIV/AIDS were not able to get proper nutrition and treatment. Another big concern for those working in the field of HIV/AIDS is to reach out to the large number of children who have not been tested and who could be potential carriers of the virus. Identifying children who are vulnerable to HIV infection and verifying their Status would therefore be a priority. Currently this project is able to support up to 300 children. Core activities of the project: Nutritional Support Diagnosis of HIV infection in infants and children Enumeration of CD4 Cells in children found to be HIV Positive ART initiation for children needed treatment Diagnosis and management of Opportunistic Infections Psycho-social Support Travel and logistical Support Number of Beneficiaries: 350 Children living with HIV/AIDS Outcome: By offering these services will enable the stigma free environment among the children suffering with HIV/AIDS. Therefore, this will reduce the stigma associated with the HIV disease in our society. While treating their opportunistic infections and offering them proper nutrition will also enable them to attend the school regularly and psycho-support (counseling) can impact on children to adopt good behaviour. In addition this support will strengthen the positive thinking to lead happy life among CLHAs. PROGRAM-3 Name of the Project: Summer Camp Target Area: Hyderabad and Neighbour Districts Target Group: Children living with HIV/AIDS Aims & Objectives: To offer recreational activities Goal of the Project: Goal of this project is to enable these children for joy and happiness to break the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV/AIDS Supporting Agency : Individual donors and few business associates Activities: These Camps include Games, Fun, Yoga, Painting, Drawing, Music, Dance, Singing, Magic Show & Movies etc. A team of Doctors and Nurses will render their expert services in conducting health check-up. This unique facility is made available to Hyderabad and its surrounding district children. For all the beneficiaries DESIRE Society intends to provide Food, Accommodation, Health and Travel facilities. Beneficiaries: Around 250 Children Infected with HIV/AIDS Outcome: Since there is no permanent cure in the field of HIV/AIDS these camps carry joy to the children. Therefore it is believed that this project would help children live longer.
