HIV- AIDS is one of the most grievous problems threatening the health conditions in Burundi. Peace and development have been affected by ethnic war that lasted 14 years. As result of this war, around a half million of people were killed and 60% of houses were destroyed. The spread of Aids in Burundi is because of 3 areas namely: Lack of knowledge about the disease, The African culture & religion and Poverty. This Project intends to tackle the problems.
This Project intends to tackle the problems above mentioned through sharing and exchanging experiences on Aids, Peace and Development. Those already affected by Aids will learn through internet how to conduct themselves in order to live more days. The none affected ones will learn how to protect themselves and how to avoid its propagation in their community and nation.
Thousands of Burundians will learn how to fight Aids, promote peace and development from the experiences of others, through Internet. There will be hope to those who were hopeless due to Aids and insecurity. They will learn new way of living, behaving, acting towards AIDS in order to live longer and how to prevent Aids in Burundian community and live peacefully toward development. The propagation of Aids and those killed by it will be reduced in Burundian Community and nation.
