Summary

Give Me Another Chance (GAC) operates in slums of Nairobi, with people from all communities and ages living with, or struggling with, their HIV/AIDS diagnosis. Since the sudden death of Tiba's Chief Executive Daniel Marungu in September, 2018 the Tiba Board has been reviewing this important work. It has notably been supporting preventative work in Machokos with school children and has sponsored a 'Tiba marathon' and is planning breathwork sessions to increase vitality and wellbeing.

Challenge

We want t the menace of 'false truth' around HIV and AIDS to be eradicated from our community, the mortality rate to decline and lost dignity be reclaimed, children can go to school without discrimination and the ashamed can outgrow the shame. We want FALSE, created MYTHS around HIV and AIDS reduced to ZERO!

Solution

This project is vital to enable people to become HIV/AIDS survivors rather than victims; there is so much stigma and mis-information here that people are scared to be tested and often treated as social outcasts if they do. It is statistically proven that the life of a person living with HIV/AIDS is significantly influenced by their psychological wellbeing. GAC aims to make the difference in outcomes: providing physical,mental emotional and spiritual support for holistic healing.

Long-Term Impact

Our participants will get over their diagnosis, overcome the deadly silence surrounding the condition, choose to live, not to die, get on treatment and not suffer from opportunistic infections, cope with being HIV+, maintain routine therapy, get support from a support group until they can go on their way and perhaps become peer educator so they can help support other people'. We are currently reviewing this project following the sudden death of our CEO Daniel Marungu.
