Review for FERTILEGROUND, San Rafael, CA, USA
Fertile Ground is a Non-Profit Organization founded in 2005 to educate, support and empower individuals affected by HIV and AIDS. It has since then, provided a safe place in which children and their families are able to address pertinent issues, associated with the disease and its' attached stigma, without judgment or fear while simultaneously strengthening community bonds and enhancing social support.
Robert and Jawaya Shea, together with a host of volunteers have inspired individuals from all walks of life to take responsibility for themselves, their families as well as their communities and to assist in uplifting the lives of those less fortunate. They have played a intregral role in organising numerous residential and day camps as well as providing outreach programs for affected children, to major hospitals and clinics around the Cape Town district.
Their camps are well-structured, organised and exhibit an incredible amount of hard work and dedication towards this cause. The programs created, incorporate life skills such as leadership, self-empowerment and responsibility as well as more practical skills needed to cope with everyday life.
This organisation is committed to the development and upliftment of youth in this country and their efforts to positively effect change among these communities should be commended.
