Sustaining the Children’s Support groups
We support 150 HIV+ children between 7 -14 years old. They meet 4 times per year in 5 separate groups of approx.30 children. We organise a total of 20 meetings with these Children’s support groups. The costs per meeting are R2000 (travel costs, food and programme costs)
VMS offers workshops to empower the children to take control of their own drug regime, to be healthy by eating nutritious food, and to help eradicate the dreadful stigma associated with HIV/AIDS by improving their confidence and self-esteem.
