The cornerstone of our mission is “harambe,” which in Swahili means “working together in unity” or “pulling together.” Our role goes beyond simple loan provision. By organizing participants into peer groups that draw on the strong bonds of African community life, WAF also strives to promote collective action for community development that includes fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic through prevention, testing and treatment.
