Project Launch:

Zambia has one of the world's highest HIV prevalence rates as nearly an eighth of all adult Zambians are infected with the virus. Social and cultural barriers, such as stigma, ignorance, traditional gender norms, and isolation, hamper effective prevention, treatment, and diagnosis. The virus claims thousands of lives each year and women are especially affected. This project proposes the creation of a chicken coop that will enable a local women's group in rural Zambia to promote adequate nutrition (protein) and create income that will sustain their work as well as their efforts to prevent the spread of HIV and attend to the needs of those living with HIV/AIDS.
