In a region devastated by AIDS, these rural widows have joined their small plots of land to form an organic farming co-op. They need equipment and training to pull themselves and their children out of poverty. Presently, we have trained twenty widows in Long Term Survivor Skills in HIV/AIDS and they are in turn training others in their community. We have sent six AIDS widows for training in tailoring and they are now operating their own businesses and together the group has begun construction of a training center in their small village which will operate along with government aid to provide skill training for the local community. The group has also purchased bicycles to reach remote homesteads to train in HIV prevention and education.
