Hope For Hiv Victims

Usife Moyo Women Group is an initiative that was born at the right time,bearing in mind the outcome realized since inception in 2002.It has quickly translated into a panacea,a tool advocating and breaching a serious gap for lonely women pinned to the wall by the AIDS scorch.My joining the group in 2003 was still in good time,I have built a positive self esteem since being a victim of HIV/Aids in the last five years.Ihave been able to believe that I can live with it still engage in income generating activities that earn me and my family daily bread.I have been able to pay school fees for my daily bread.I have been able to pay shool fees for my own confidence as a result of being a member of USIFE MOYO WOMEN GROUP
