APRECOM is committed to supporting people living with HIV and AIDS.
APRECOM staff and volunteers coordinate weekly support groups for parents, and home-based care and counselling for people in need. APRECOM’s Inshuti Nziza¬†clubs cater to the unique needs¬†of children affected by HIV/AIDS; combining fun, faith and counselling to enable children to face the future with hope. 100 children regularly attend the club in Gatsata alone.
Alongside this, APRECOM¬†is committed to mobilising local churches to¬†be proactive in responding to HIV and to ensure that children in their communities are enabled to thrive. And because HIV is so often linked to extreme poverty, APRECOM is committed to helping families out of poverty, too.
Young people¬†over 15 are invited to join the Inshuti Nziza Troop who, despite being deeply affected by HIV, volunteer at support groups for adults¬†with HIV¬†and visit the sick in hospital.
APRECOM¬†runs parenting workshops, dramatically improving relationships within families,¬†and teaches job skills such as tailoring, which give young people the chance of a career.
Most recently, APRECOM has had an opportunity to support a school for children living with disabilities. This is an exciting new dimension to APRECOM’s work, and the team is exploring how this might continue in the long term.
¬£8 will pay for a teenager to attend an Inshuti Nziza discipleship and life skills seminar.
¬£25 will purchase seeds and cuttings for sustainable gardening and agriculture projects.
