HIV prevalence is at its height in the Fako district and Southwest region of Cameroon because of common traditional practices such as wife inheritance and polygamy, all of which encourage multiple partners and therefore the spread of HIV/AIDS. As a result, the area has many AIDS orphans and widows. Agriculture is a major source of income in the region and women are responsible for of the agricultural production, like growing crops, rearing animals etc...


Nido serve about 15000 women and children every year with healthcare, skills training and education and through this project, impoverished Aids widows and their families will become self-supportive and create a better life for them and their children

Long-Term Impact

More than 5000 Aids widows and orphans will partake in an educational skills program so that the participants can make or develop their efforts for a livelihood and it will also help them move from subsistence farming to income-generating activities.
