Working with a team of youth with different talents, 10 years ago we began a nameless youth group that reached out to schools with Music, Dance and Drama, Poems, Debates, Life skills, etc. for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. We impacted, inspired and educated many young people who started to realize their dreams and eventually they became volunteers within their different communities and schools. Through our work, many young people were trained in Sexual Reproductive Health, Youth tested for HIV, Youth participated in awareness campaigns, and this paved way for us to reach more youth most especially in schools and communities. Our work impacted youth and these resulted into young musicians, young experienced marketers, sports men and women, young entrepreneurs, young experienced doctors, theatrical performing dancers, Actors, etc who are now mentors, trainers and counselors. With this grown team of young professionals, we birthed Haven Anti-AIDS Foundation.
Through Haven Anti-AIDS Foundation, 79,258 orphans and vulnerable children through education, unemployed youth, health key informants known as Peer Corps, HIV positive youth, young mothers and young leaders.
Rebranding to Haven Foundation comes at a time where people in under-served and less fortunate communities have lost hope, disappointed, tired, oppressed and depressed. Women and young girls have been neglected, increased poverty levels, high crime rates, school dropouts, early pregnancies and early marriages have hit many communities. Our work is dedicated to inspire, empower, mentor, educate and nurture children, youth and women to realize their potential and discover their worth. Today, our beneficiaries including orphans and vulnerable children, underemployed and unemployed youth, Peer Corps, HIV positive youth, young leaders, young mothers and women are engaged in different programs including Teenage AIDS Orphans program, Beyond Talks program, Build Up Skills program as well as Annual Youth AIDS Walks. Through this, we are impacting children, peer corps, young entrepreneurs, women, young mothers and key community informants.
