The local community in Ruhengeri is responding to the HIV/AIDS pandemic (12% of the population are currently HIV positive) with a number of projects, that would greatly benefit from additional material support.
These include an 'Association des Jeunes Scolarisé contre le SIDA' - run by a young team committed to educating their peers in the principles of safe-sex and to confronting the local taboo against condom use. In a separate project, community workshops employ the handicraft skills of local men and women living with HIV/AIDS.
Inshuti-UK aim to introduce these craft products into the UK market in
order to generate greater profits for the project, as well as publicising
and fundraising for the HIV/AIDS projects in Ruhengeri.
