Funds will be raised for our new HIV Education community project starting in December. Here is some info on our new and exciting initiative!

We will be starting community-based HIV Education lessons in Chinotimba and Mkhosana in the very near future. Hospitals and clinics have already agreed this would be a beneficial endeavour and any courses will be in partnership with them. Classes will be advertised and hosted in the communities at schools, halls, churches, etc. and we will use our contacts to solidify classes and run them when numbers allow. Certificates will be given to all those who complete the course (a pre-test to test knowledge and post-test to test learning will be given). Our hope is to expand to businesses in Victoria Falls - a course for staff of a business is a great investment in employees!

Please come help us support a good cause. Hope to see you all there!
