Challenge

Uganda government has made progress in achieving reduced PMTCT new HIV cases. However, according to district report (2012) 65% tested women cannot access or afford ARVs related expense due to poverty leading to increased new HIV infections. They also lack training opportunities to empower them improve their sources of incomes and meet resource demand like medical care, (PMTCT and ARVs), fortified foods and prolong their lives.

Solution

The project will train and facilitate 186 HIV positive mothers with 186 improved goats. Using goats droppings and wastes, 186 HIV+ women will be trained to practice kitchen vegetable growing to supplement on their incomes and nutritional food intake. Home to home visits will be conducted periodically to monitor 186 goats development, 185 HIV+ drugs (ARVs) and dietary adherence for improved livelihoods and free new HIV born babies. They will transfer trained skills to other mothers.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve 186 HIV+ mothers family incomes and access to ARVs. Improved incomes will enable 186 HIV+ women look after additional dependents like HIV orphans properly and cater for their needs like education. Dietary intake and adherence to ARVs will prolong their lives. Over 400 community members will have access to improved goats milk and vegetables for better nutrition. 186 HIV+ trained women will become community owned resource persons and train others for project expansion.
