Project Life reaches out to help AIDS widows and their children—families whose lives are dominated by the disease and the deep poverty that accompanies it.
Our project leader, Noemia Cessito, shares why Project Life was started:
"When awareness and the reality of HIV/AIDS first came to the Dondo Community, I commonly saw despair in the eyes of the diagnosed. Some committed suicide. Others lived in a constant state of depression. Project Life brings hope.”
The Tessa Grace Nutrition program cares for mothers and babies who have no help or hope, many of whom also suffer from HIV/AIDS.
We deliver direct aid to these families through our Project Life and Tessa Grace activistas, who walk miles each day to make home visits and to offer encouragement, prayer, and a helping hand. They share the gospel and teach weekly Bible studies. Our Project Life activistas care for those in their last stages of life, helping with meals, bedding, companionship and prayer. While our Tessa Grace activistas offer the chance for a healthy start to life for malnourished babies and infants.
These dedicated men and women are enabled to serve through the generosity of their sponsors. Each sponsorship helps to provide an activista with a salary and monthly food supply. Sponsorships are $30 a month, and each activista needs four sponsors to be fully funded.
