AIDS Relief International's work so far is a great program because it is designed to target a specific and very important need of AIDS patients--proper nutrition. This is an area often overlooked by traditional AIDS organizations, and also by the Indian government. We are working to address this need, and hope to carry success over to other patients across the globe

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

fundraising money and gaining support in Mumbai and among faculty at Brown University, garnering the help of student volunteers

I have worked with AIDS Relief International since founding it last year and I have seen the organization grow tremendously during this time. We have gained the support of the Rhode Island community and of several professors and students at Brown University, recruited many additional members, fundraised strongly, and spread the word about our work through newspaper articles and events. We are incredibly passionate about helping patients who are suffering from HIV/AIDS, which keeps us motivated to pursue better methods. Currently, we are providing nutrition to children in a hospital in Mumbai who are having trouble processing their antiretroviral medications because they have been declared severely malnourished by a doctor. I am proud that we have worked to understand the countries in which we are creating our programs as to make changes that will be sustainable and accepted by the communities.

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

the commencement of its first nutritional program in Mumbai.

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

its ambitious board of directors and undying desire to improve the world

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

motivated, passionate

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

establish programs throughout the world
