Target demographics: youths affected by HIV/AIDS

Geographic areas served: South Africa

Programs: a fun and engaging camp that teaches kids essential life skills primarily focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and how to recognize and avoid exploitation and abuse while teaching nutrition, teamwork, and gender equality. After camp, campers attend biweekly meetings that reinforce the skills and ideas introduced and the support system created at camp.

Mission:
The mission of Global Camps Africa (GCA) is to change the lives of South Africa’s vulnerable children and youth by providing HIV/AIDS prevention education and training through high-impact residential camp and day camp experiences and continuing education, equipping young people with the life skills that will support them in becoming safe and productive adults who have hope for the future.
Results:
Global Camps Africa has had over 5,200 at risk or affected youths attend Camp Sizanani, and currently hosts 420 youths at camp yearly and between 600-100 at bi-weekly Kids Club meetings.
