Traveling through Mozambique on the way to Rwanda, Africare Board Member Senator Frist stopped to visit one of Africare’s HIV/AIDS Projects in the town of Vanduzi, Mozambique.
Orphans & Vulnerable Children
“Every mile we walk helps a child in Africa,” stated Ceire before the 5-mile event. “I can’t think of anything better to do on a Saturday afternoon.”
The Youth Empowerment and Support (YES!) Project was designed to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and expand risk-reduction choices among the most vulnerable youth from 15 to 24 years in Malawi, Zambia and South Africa.
Since 2002, Africare has been implementing its model care and support program for orphans and vulnerable children. This model, known under the acronym COPE (Community-based Orphan care, Protection and Empowerment), seeks to provide a comprehensive level of programming for orphans and vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS and their caregivers.
