We support locally-driven projects which enable African communities to resist, survive and overcome HIV/AIDS.
Founded in 2003, CAP/AIDS is now one of many communities that make up the CAP Network. All funds raised by the CAP/AIDS community in 2017 CAP Ride Bikeathon will support a new and needed project with CAPAIDS-Uganda. Their Home of Hope facility in Lira, northern Uganda, is being rennovated to serve as a safe shelter for vulnerable women – specifically street-involved and/or engaging in transactional sex as a means of livelihood support – and their children. At the shelter women will receive health information and direct access to the health team at the Boroboro Health Centre as well as livelihood training and supports so that they can transition to independent living.
