People make things happen. People make the difference.
Our purpose is to improve service delivery in the HIV and AIDS Sector by providing wellness support and capacity building programmes to health workers, caregivers and their organisations. We aim to build caring and nurturing communities through our 2 programmes:
Care for Caregivers (CFC) programme:
We focus on providing psycho-social support to HIV and AIDS organizations providing services across the prevention, treatment, care and support spectrum in the Western Cape, with expansion plans in place for the Eastern Cape, Northern Cape and Limpopo. We focus primarily on self-care workshops that provide participants with a safe space to share and learn new tools for stress-relief. read more...
Linking, Learning & Lobbying (LLL) programme:
This programme is a dynamic and responsive platform for advocacy, mobilisation, research and policy development to improve carers’ working conditions. We aim to ensure that carers are acknowledged and supported by an enabling environment and strive for the voices of carers to be heard, amplified and directly impact on agendas and policy which affect them. read more...
Our current focus is in the Western Cape, Northern Cape, Eastern Cape and Limpopo provinces.
