Reaching out to the community in the area of HIV/AIDS

We are a Ministry of Youth With A Mission Arusha, reaching out to the community in the area of HIV/AIDS, encouraging and teaching them how to live a positive life while they are still infected.


Preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS Encouraging positive living and hope to the infected while creating awareness and training in schools, churches and the community in general through education and advocacy.
We aim to raise awareness through teaching and training the community on how to respond positively to the challenges posed by the Aids pandemic. We also coordinate local support groups of those living with the Virus.


  • Teaching and encouraging positive living for those infected
  • Empowering the group members on micro-finance and small home-based income generating projects that keeps them focused on living their lives and not worry about the virus
  • Having seminars on awareness about HIV/AIDS to the infected and affected in schools, churches and community gatherings where possible

Some of the people we serve who are HIV / AIDS positive are organized in two support groups.

Elinoi Group

A women group, most of them with children and/or grandchildren

Arusha Men Support Group

This group is a men only group, most of them elderly and with families depending on them

We also run an education support program that helps keep orphans and children of Aids victims stay in school and acquire quality education. Currently we have full support of 8 such children.
