Mission: African aid organization, inc. (afaid) is a non-profit organization devoted to providing first-class assistance, support, and education to the most vulnerable children in sub-saharan africa. We help these children who are affected by hiv/aids or who deal with the hardships of poverty by investing in them and in their future. Hiv/aids continues to be a major development, global health and security challenge in sub-saharan africa. It reverses life expectancy gains, erodes productivity, decimates the workforce, consumes savings and dilutes poverty efforts. Fortunately, factors contributing to the problem can be addressed with strategic programs. Our mission is to provide young girls and young boys with the tools, knowledge and resources to protect themselves against hiv/aids and other sexually transmitted infections.
Programs: African aid organization continues to spread hiv/aids prevention messages and outreach sessions to children and other young people in sub-saharan africa to reduce the spread of the epidemic. Hiv/aids awareness clubs created in some schools are doing a great job to involve young boys and girls in our prevention program. Afaid trains members of the club and provide them with basic information regarding hiv, aids, and other sexual transmitted diseases (stds). Members of the clubs connect easily with their respective communities when it comes to testing, discussing safer sex behavior, and including hiv prevention messages in their daily lives. As a matter of fact, afaid awareness clubs have positive influence on young people with whom they interact easily.
