The goal of our pediatric HIV care program is to strengthen the community by equipping families with tools to take care of their HIV+ children. Family members of children enrolled are provided with training in caring for an HIV+ child, and education in HIV prevention. This leads to an improvement in the health of the children, prevention of HIV, and reduction in stigma associated with HIV.
Programs for the Community
Thanks as always for your support for our work in the area of women's empowerment and community strengthening in Zambia. As you know our goal is to empower women by teaching them marketable skills so they can take better care of their families, keep their children in school, and become role model for others in the community.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy September! Today we want you to meet an amazing young lady. Her name is Hayley Smalley and for her Senior Project, she decided to raise funds to prevent malaria in Zambia. To keep Zambian children malaria free, Hayley organized several events in Columbus, IN including a soup dinner at her Church.
Dear Friend: Happy New Year! We are excited to share our plans for 2016. With your support and encouragement we will be expanding our pediatric HIV care and micro loans programs this year. In brief we will:
1. Add 50 children to our pediatric HIV care programbringing the total number of HIV+ children in our care to 300.
Dear Friend: Power of Love extends a personal and heartfelt thanks for your support. We've had a big year, and we would not have achieved our goals without you. Below are some of our key accomplishments:
1. Survival rate of 98% for HIV+ infants over a 10-year period
2. Zero new HIV infections: 97% of live births to HIV+ mothers are HIV-free.
