Problem

Risky behavior and lack of education are two main reasons why HIV and AIDS are spreading so rapidly in impoverished regions of Africa.

The Gift

Your gift will provide counseling on HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases to couples in the Diocese of Kaya. This Couple-to-Couple Counseling Project trains volunteer couples to visit married and engaged couples to talk about HIV and AIDS. The volunteer couples use bicycles to reach vulnerable couples in remote areas. The project trains participants to develop safe-living plans. Information and awareness-raising sessions are also used to educate community leaders, traditional chiefs, civil servants and traditional birth attendants. Your generous gift of $100 will provide counseling help to 48 couples for one year.
