Summary

The New Life Center provides excellent lifesaving treatment to children with HIV/AIDS while training their parents in hygiene and nutritious food, which lets HIV-infected people live fulfilling lives.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

HIV/AIDS is a rapidly growing problem in Nepal, fueled by ignorance about HIV prevention and brutal discrimination against people with AIDS. Many children with HIV are forced to leave their schools, and infected women are often abandoned by their husbands. Because of this stigma, many people avoid being tested and hide their symptoms of AIDS for as long as possible. According to a U.N. study, more than 80% of Nepalis with HIV have not been diagnosed.

How will this project solve this problem?

The New Life Center provides excellent lifesaving treatment to children with HIV/AIDS while teaching their caretakers to live hygienically and cook nutritious meals. This is the only facility in Nepal that treats HIV/AIDS with a holistic approach.

Potential Long Term Impact

The training in nutrition and hygiene dramatically reduces the risk of acquiring the illnesses that make HIV develop into AIDS, and lets infected people lead fulfilling lives. Children with full-blown AIDS become able to have full happy childhoods.
