- In 2011 we sponsored one volunteer to Tanzania to work in an orphanage providing care and basic education to orphaned children.
- Since the training in April, 2014 two volunteers and two board members have traveled to Kenya and worked with the two organizations.
The group was started by 10 women in rural Western Kenya and has now grown to 28 members taking care of 35 AIDS orphans.
Uzima supports these two groups in the following areas:
Home based care for people living with HIV/AIDS and other illnesses
Capacity building in the areas of Human Rights of women and girls as part of advancing Health and Sexual &Reproductive Rights:
Increased access to education for AIDS orphans and women
