EVENT DATE: Dec 04, 2011
World AIDS Day is a globally recognized day, which takes place every year on December 1st to acknowledge the loss of millions of lives for over 30 years. NextAid honors the memories of those lost by activating the international dance music community to raise funds and awareness for populations currently being affected by AIDS, particularly women and children in Africa who carry the burden of the pandemic.
Proceeds from this campaign will support NextAid’s current project in the Kawangware slum in Nairobi, Kenya, the construction an eco-friendly, micro-enterprise facility for a street youth project which trains and employees young HIV positive mothers and others often at risk due to lack of income.
Retro Hi-Fi is a weekly House/Indie Dance Music Sunday event based in Phoenix. My team and I believe in NextAid's mission and all its hard work in Africa. I especially respect and admire co-founder Lauren, how she leads her team and all their endeavours. We've helped in the past and are happy and excited to help again, dedicating this whole month to raise funds for NextAid's KVC project. Please consider donating by using this page and/or by donating and supporting our night on Sundays at Sidebar (if you live or can visit us in Arizona).
Thank You for being a part of this brilliant movement and your support!
Seasons Greetings with love,

Information about the beneficiary project:
NextAid is entering in the final phase of construction on the Kawangware Vision Centre (KVC). For the last couple of years, they’ve been working closely with a community-based Kenyan organization that employs youth in an ecological bag making business. Right now they are building a new facility that will serve the kids and youth for generations to come! The youths are being trained in ecological construction methods and are building the workshop and community center themselves. With these new skills in eco-construction, they are starting a new business of making and selling earth bricks and roof tiles. The builders include young mothers too, which makes this project especially inspiring and needed! Their goal is to raise $15,000 by the end of this year.
