AIDS Healthcare Foundation Partnership

We recently received a grant from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and a part of it, of course, goes to counseling and testing for HIV in the rural villages where Aid Africa works. We are very pleased to add this project to our others.aids-poster-w-peter

All of our staff have received training about HIV and AIDS. We are not a medical organization, though, so we take healthcare professionals with us for the testing.

We’re having our Fall Celebration tomorrow, so I had this poster made showing a few photos of our community meeting a couple of weeks ago.

Visit our web site at aidafrica.net to learn more about our projects.

Aid Africa’s Interns Make News

Aid Africa was host to five university students from early June through mid-August.

Christina Rice of Princeton University stayed a with us for bout two months documenting our stove manufacturing processes, interviewing villagers about our products to see what they do and don’t like an then interviewing the staff to see what management improvements we can make. A lot of great work!

This link will show you a video of what our four students from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo were up to, making a solar cooker using a photovoltaic panel.

It’s exciting to have these bright young people focus their enthusiasm on helping the very poor people that Aid Africa serves.
