Walk to provide funding and resources for the operations of HIV-related Voluntary Counseling and Testing Centers (VCTs) and clinics in sub-Saharan Africa and the United State.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Because HIV affects numerous aspects of life and society, our initiative provides multiple areas of support and services. Through partnering with community-based establishments in Zimbabwe, we work to supply prevention, counseling, and education resources, while increasing medical and nutritional support for AIDS patients. In addition, we focus on empowering families and individuals through support groups, child education programs, and income generation projects.
How will this project solve this problem?
Though Voluntary Counseling and Testing Centers (VCTs), people in need receive counseling and medical assistance, anti-retroviral treatment, nutrition resources, and other forms of support in income generation projects, child education, clothing, etc
Potential Long Term Impact
The project helps to sustain programs in local VCTs, which service 2,000-3,000 people a year. These ground-based institutions facilitate discussion groups, education, and income generation projects to increase community HIV and public health support.
