Resist! Survive! Overcome!
YOU can help CAP AIDS raise $15,000 to provide AIDS-orphaned African youth with job skills training and life tools to help them pursue safe and sustainable livelihoods.
Please join Friends of CAP AIDS for the Scotiabank Group Charity Challenge on Sunday, September 26, 2010. Whether you're a runner or a walker, you can help raise money to make a difference in the life of an AIDS orphan like Eunice Akello.
Eunice is one of the 100 Ugandan youth who benefitted from CAP AIDS' Northern Rehabilitation Program (NUREP). She participated in a 6-month tailoring course and also received a sewing machine and start-up materials provided by CAP AIDS. As a result of this, Eunice now earns about $5 a day making school uniforms and is able to provide food and shelter for herself, her younger sister, and her grandmother. Prior to the assistance and training she received, she and her family often spent their days hungry.

If you cannot run or walk with Friends of CAP AIDS on September 26, you can still partner with Africans in their ongoing struggle to resist, survive and overcome HIV+AIDS by sponsoring a runner/walker or donating directly to CAP AIDS. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more.
Canada Africa Partnership on AIDS (CAP AIDS) is a volunteer-driven, registered, Canadian charity that works in partnership with grassroots, community-based African AIDS Service Organizations to resist, survive and overcome HIV+AIDS.
