4. HIV+ AND AIDS INFECTED PROJECTS

We have adopted three families in three different cities of Goa and help them in several ways. We provide old newspapers that we collect from our friends and give to them free so that they can make paper bags out of that and sell them in the markets and get money to run their family. We also provide help to buy raw materials to make pickles, and other eatables so they can sell them in the market and earn money for them. We provide medical help for them, special help for the infected Children in their education. Also some ration is given on a regular basis to these families. We also give some training and education to these infected families.
