Summary

Sreyassu is a community-based organization located in Chillakallu, Jagayyapeta Mandal in Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh State. It was started in 2006 as a Project to support the people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Slowly, the registered members in the Project were educated and empowered in a way that they grouped together and formed as a community based Organization. The aim of the project is to help 100 HIV affected children with foster care, education, and nutrition.

Challenge

The problem of HIV/AIDS is rampant, with some of the highest prevalence in our project area, Jaggiahpet. The area is a transportation hub and has several cement factories with migrant workers, and lack of health education and outreach widens the care gap. While the Sreyassu project has provided comprehensive care, counseling and outreach activities to around 1276 registered beneficiaries, there is still a great need to encourage prevention, promote care, social support, and treatment adherence.

Solution

Since its inception in 2006, the Sreyassu project volunteers have worked tirelessly to educate, reach out, and win the trust of the local people to enable them to be able to access services. Our programs include safe sex behavior education camps working with high risk groups of sex trade workers, providing nutrition support and counseling, and educating the community to prevent new infections, reduce opportunistic infections, and keep children and adults happy, healthy, educated, and productive.

Long-Term Impact

We are committed to empowering men, women, and children to be able to live normal lives. Our story is a testament to this possibility: Initially, Sreyassu was not able to rent a facility for our programs. We had to move several times as the landlords were reluctant to rent to people with HIV/AIDS. Through determination and hard work, the Sreyassu board raised funds locally and constructed their center. This project will enable them to continue their work provide support to 100 children with HIV.
