HIV/AIDS Mitigation Program

Little Stars Organization is dedicated to mitigating the effects which the HIV/AIDS epidemic has had on the Rusinga Island community. We have numerous activities in this regard which include:

1) Direct support to orphans and vulnerable children – assisting with the provision of school uniforms and school fee subsidies;

2) Home-based care for people living with HIV & AIDS (PLWHA) – 20 community members who were originally trained with PEPFAR support now train other community members on living positively, proper sanitation, and techniques for avoiding opportunistic infections; and,

3) Income-generating activities for PLWHA – includes a small bakery and other womens’ group activities.

Together, we can fight HIV & AIDS and improve the lives of our friends and neighbors.
