Challenge

There are 1.42m people living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya. The project focuses on six HIV+ support groups in the Coastal region of Kenya where the prevalence of HIV/AIDS is third highest in the country (8.1%) and where significant gaps exist in the support HIV+ people need. The project will address the challenges brought by living with HIV/AIDS, the consequences this has on people's status and acceptance in society, and their own confidence and their ability to live a quality life.

Solution

This project will train 12 HIV+ facilitators to take the 90 participants through seven 2-hour sessions, deepening their understanding of their situation, identifying challenges and practical ways to address them, and linking them to local support

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the lives of 90 people living with HIV/AIDS and impact positively on their families and communities. It will link them to other organisations for ongoing support and develop facilitators and leaders for more similar projects.
