FACE-TO-FACE AIDS PROJECT INC

Support this happy occasion with a gift to Chadika Programs

via Crowdrise 2 years ago

THE STORY:

The photos at left show Manny and me when we volunteered with the Face-to-Face AIDS project in Malawi.  Mike and his family were just one reason the trip was amazing.   They live in the village of Chadika, a model community for Face-to-Face.  The successes we witnessed inspire us to this day and inspired us to select this charity as a way to celebrate our wedding.    The people of Malawi, and villages like Chadika in particular, face many basic challenges but initiatives started by Face-to-Face are leading the way towards self-sufficiency. 

As you will see below, strategic projects centered around new farming techniques, and HIV prevention together with fundamental investments have raised the standard of living and helped to secure the community's future.    Our experience as part of these projects was deeply moving.  These photos barely hint at the wonderful people and the dedication they have made to educating and feeding themselves, work that Face-to-Face has made a  priority. Your gift would mean a great deal to us, and will be life-changing for the beneficiaries.   Thank you for sharing in this experience with us.
