Families Growing Positively
In Nicaragua, there are 10,000 HIV-positive citizens who face stigma, discrimination, and social exclusion, leaving this subpopulation largely neglected. Further, over 3000 Nicaraguan children are orphans as a result of losing their parents to HIV/AIDS. This threat of the disease and the social silence surrounding its spread puts untold lives at risk. This project proposes a four day sleepaway camp for 25 families affected by HIV/AIDS. At the camp, participants will receive HIV/AIDS education, including discussions of safe sex, self-care training, and further training in resiliency and overcoming stigma.
