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.
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. Quarterly seminars help strengthen teenagers’ faith and friendships, and¬†teach them important life skills.
APRECOM¬†runs parenting workshops and teaches job skills such as tailoring, giving young people the chance of a career. For the poorest families, it also provides practical support such as food and school fees, but its focus is on helping families become self-sufficient, through methods such as income development projects.
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.
¬£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.
