The founders of AIDS Relief International seemed very dedicated to providing the nutrition to the HIV infected children in Mumbai. I was very impressed that they were doing so much despite being full time students. The project seems interesting and effective.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the events held regularly on the Brown University campus.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Aim towards larger fundraising possibilities, rather than student-based fundraising.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how enthusiastic and determined the founders are. Also how achievable their goal is with the right support.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

approachable, and understood a lot of the background information for the project and were able to explain it well.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save thousands of children's lives.

Ways to make it better...

there was a larger crowd at the fundraiser.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

fundraising! It is hard to convince people that a specific project is worth donating to.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish people understood how much more we could do to help others.

AIDS Relief International is dedicated to supporting the millions of patients around the world who struggle with HIV/AIDS. They have identified several aspects of international relief efforts which require additional focus, and areas where they can contribute in a unique, specialized way. Specifically, they are providing nutritional supplementation and medication delivery services to help fulfill the basic requirements for adequate therapy. They have excellent contacts in Mumbai, India, and have demonstrated both an ability and a desire to make a significant impact on the impoverished HIV/AIDS population. The cumulative accomplishments of members within the group are beyond impressive, and I predict that their current endeavor will equal or surpass their past achievements.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their passionate efforts to raise money for this worthwhile cause.

I have partnered with AIDS Relief International in several projects on Brown University's campus through my membership in Brown's Key Club Chapter. The volunteers I've worked with are dedicated; they brainstorm and execute significant projects that raise funds and awareness for one of our world's most dire threats.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our Key Club organization has benefitted from generous ARI crossover volunteers.
