400 students and their families directly benefit from our program. The program assists children in the HIV/AIDS ravaged slums of Soweto, located in Nairobi, Kenya. The project needs trained doctors, nurses and social workers and a feeding program. The impact of HIV/AIDS is so large and it affects the entire community, whereas, AIDS orphans are discriminated against and often end up on the streets. Girls bear the brunt of the HIV problem as they are sent out to beg for food and are often raped.
