The Caregiver Education and Training project will be a very long term effort. We have been applying for funding from foundations and others and as yet do not have the necessary funds to move as fast as we would like. Our applications for two foundation grants have been denied, but we will continue to pursue funding.
We have been working on collaborations with a variety of providers in the local area as well as other community organizations in order to set up communication links and contacts once the project is underway.
We will be collaborating with a local company to educate and train their staff on HIV issues and address the problem of stigma as well. We also have discused this issue with local government administrators in order to create a collaborative team once the project has momentum.
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.
Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
