Sustainable livelihoods for HIV widows

The two-year project aims to enable 150 widows affected by HIV to become self-sufficient by giving them the skills and means to develop and run sustainable businesses, in order to support their families with better education, better housing and regular meals. Specific activities include training and mentoring the HIV affected women and their families to enable them to set up an income-generating activity. The women will subsequently receive start-up grants to develop a business of their choice. Their family members are included in the training and mentoring to ensure the knowledge is shared and the project is sustainable, even in case of illness. Development loans will also be available to 45 women (previous grantees), to further expand their businesses.
