Organizational Statement of Faith


It is an urgent time for churches, volunteers and communities to join hands in a concerted effort to educate and protect our vulnerable youth and to be ready to bring comfort to those living with or dying from HIV/AIDS. This project provides the community with the training and tools necessary and enable them to become part of the solution of ending the growing problem of this disease, illiteracy and poverty through education and vocational support and social development. The depth and variety of work to be undertaken in our program on behalf of the children is extensive, but carefully planned grass-roots teamwork and good training will reap much fruit.
