Thank You For Your Support!

Thank you so much for your support of mothers2mothers' (m2m) adolescent project in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa! We have enjoyed sending you updates on this project over the past several months and hope you have enjoyed reading them.

We have shared the frightening statistics of HIV infection rates among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) and you have learned how m2m works to reduce HIV infections and HIV-related mortality and morbidity by employing Peer Mentors, young women who provide critical safer sex education and promote HIV counselling and testing among their AGYW peers. You have gotten to know a few of these Peer Mentors through project updates and I'd like to remind you of some of their most powerful quotes.

Amanda: "I like to be a Peer Mentor to help other young women to have someone to talk to who is their age."

Lumgile: "for the girls who are HIV positive, I teach them that they should have hope that there are more years and I give them support. And for those who are HIV negative, I teach them the importance to stay negative because we want to keep the new generation AIDS free."

Sanelisiwe: "my dream is to ensure that every single young woman out there achieves their dream." 

We have decided to deactivate the adolescent project to focus our attention on our main GlobalGiving project, Be the Generation to End Paediatric AIDS in Africa. Please be assured that the good work of these Peer Mentors will continue and that m2m's adolescent program will grow to provide even more AGYW in sub-Saharan Africa with age-appropriate, empathetic support.
