Good Friends

APRECOM is determined to change the lives of children affected by HIV/AIDS, in the name of Jesus.

As part of this, the team coordinates a network of support groups for children. These clubs are called ‘Inshuti Nziza’, which means ‘good friends’. At these clubs, children are offered fun and friendship. They share one another’s burdens and learn more about God’s love for them. The clubs bring life and hope to children who have known stigma and suffering.

Odeth, APRECOM’s Team Leader tells us: ‘Now, the kids are happy, clean, respectful and confident. We’ve heard that they are now participating in their churches and Sunday Schools.’

The older Inshuti Nziza youth have formed a ‘troop’ that helps meet the practical needs of their community, rather than focusing on the problems HIV has brought to their own lives. Teaching these young people skills for living is essential, as many have lost their parents or may be the main caregivers in their families. So, APRECOM holds 3-day residential ‘life-skills’ seminars for them, where they discuss issues and are free to share their struggles.
