"Help these feet get to the finish line"
Children whose families have been deeply affected by HIV and AIDS often live difficult lives marked by stigma and discrimination. The Teresa Group through many of their group programs, works with children to allow them to express their inner most thoughts and feelings, often through the use of art. The pictures you see here are expressions of how these children view their world. Some are fearful, anxious, sad or angry. Others are hopeful and look to a different, happier present and future.
The fear of being "found out" and the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS can create a pervasive sense of loneliness and isolation.
