Two Lives Transformed by the New Life Center

Sita and her son, healthy and ready to go home

When Sita’s son, who was HIV-positive from birth, came down with a fever, tuberculosis, and other illnesses, the doctors at the local government hospital refused to help him because she couldn't afford the treatment. She was alone, destitute, and heartbroken, until someone recommended the New Life Center.

"After coming to the New Life Center, my son and I both got healthier and gained weight," Sita said. "I learned about a balanced diet, health, and hygiene. I gained self-confidence, and I learned how to deal with discrimination about HIV/AIDS and stand up for my rights." After two months at the Center, she and her child were healthy and ready to resume their lives. Sita is now employed as a social motivator, training HIV-positive women. "At the New Life Center, I became empowered. Now I feel confident enough to do anything."

The Nepal Youth Foundation’s New Life Center uses a combination of nutrition, education, enrichment, and treatment to enable HIV-positive children to live normal childhoods and to educate their mothers to care for them properly.
