When addressing the issues surrounding HIV and AIDS, the impact on children is often lost in the conversation. At AC-AF, we envision a future in which all children have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential, regardless of who they are and where they come from.
Through our programmes, we aim to create sustainable solutions to build, strengthen and support community resources in response to the various issues surrounding HIV and AIDS.
The nature of our programming seeks to strengthen children so that they can take an active role in improving their own lives — rather than relying on others.
AC-AF works directly with children and youth to ensure that they have the information they need free from the fear of judgment and gives them a voice, particularly in societies where they are traditionally not heard.
Children and youth learn best when they are having fun. At AC-AF art is used to encourage creative thinking about how HIV and AIDS and its effect on themselves and their community.
Children and youth are provided with an environment free from stigma and discrimination, where they are free to ask the questions and talk about topics that many people in their communities do not wish to discuss.
At the heart of our work is our belief that children and youth should always be at the centre of everything we do. By running in the 2013 Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon for AC-AF, you will support:
