ZAF052 Hiv-education and capacitybuilding

project description

Over six million South-Africans face hiv/aids. SCDO, the diaconry branch of the Reformed Churches in South Africa, offers hiv-education at schools, residents committees and churches. SCDO also helps hiv/aids victims in their searching for a job or in starting a business. Besides that, the organi­sation informs about the impor­tance of healthy food and counteracts stigma­ti­sation. By doing that SCDO offers hope for aids/hiv victims and helps prevent the increase of victims.

why this project?

There are over six million people with hiv/aids in South-Africa. Too many to do nothing. Especially churches have a mission to counteract stigma­ti­sation and discri­mi­nation and offer hope.

 

impact

Victims become less vulne­rable and encou­raged to take place again in the society. People who have a job, are able to eat healthy and take good care of their body.

what can we learn

It's more effective to give people insights in their abilities and disabi­lities than telling them what to do. In that way they can - also in longer terms - take better care of themselves.
