The East Africa Project is currently working on several projects. Read more below!
CARE for AIDS operates Centers in multiple communities throughout East Africa. Each center is located within a local church, which is local, cost effective, and discreet for our clients. Each center has two Kenyan or Tanzanian counselors who guide HIV+ clients through a nine-month process. Throughout the nine months, we work to empower clients in five main areas: spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and economically.
Mathere School Project
This project will help outfit the school recently constructed in the Mathere Slum of Nairobi. Our goal is to fundraise $5,000 to outfit the school with the necessities for the school to function. The $5,000 would cover school uniforms for each child and food to supply each child with one meal per day. We hope to also provide students with tables, chairs, and textbooks. The cost would also cover items for the teachers such as salaries, tables, cupboards, teaching supplies, and more.
medical mission trip
This summer, two medical mission teams will be traveling to Kenya to provide medical care to people in impoverished areas. Resident doctors from the University of Alabama Medical school will bring medical expertise and resources to the Mathare Slums of Nairobi and the Kipsongo slums of Kitale, as well as to rural areas in the Turbo and Mt. Elgon areas of Western Kenya.
