Mission Statement


To mitigate the underlying causes and long-term impact of HIV/AIDS among orphans, widows, youths and the disadvantaged. - To deal with the causes of, effects of, and significantly reverse, the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Description


TAOST is a Ugandan NGO that was started in 2003 after realizing that a large number of orphans had no one to take care of them. Moreover, many widows who had lost their husbands to HIV/AIDS were not able to support their families. TAOST therefore was founded in order to support families affected by HIV/AIDS so as to positively transform them in sustainable ways through capacity building and advocacy. After careful consideration of the primary causes for the spread of HIV/AIDS - poverty, unhealthy cultural practices, and gender imbalance - TAOST has come up with an integrated approach to solving this grave problem. TAOST therefore adds its contribution to the existing efforts to lessen the effects and blow of HIV/AIDS through various activities that include among others entrepreneurial skills development, education for the orphans, and home-based care for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Organizational Statement of Faith


A country, society and communities where households and individuals honour and live by values and practices that promote safe behavior, value education, care for one another. And everyone at his or her levels of responsibility is doing whatever is possible to realize this, and is accountable in all ways to the community that they serve. The communities on the other hand have restored a sense of social responsibility and shame, know their rights and have the knowledge and skills to hold individual, administrative and political persons responsible for any deeds that may jeopardize their vision.
