Kagera AIDS Project (Completed)

The Kagera AIDS Project was an initiative of the Anglican Church of Tanzania for Ngara District of the Kagera Region. It has now been completed, operating since 2003 to 2011.

The project worked towards establishing a holistic care programme in 20 selected villages for people who have been infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

In each village the project provided:

  • carers who were employed and trained to care for those living with HIV/AIDS
  • village microfinance projects were set up to create a self-sustainable environment in which the devastation created by this disease will be overcome
  • leadership teams were established for oversight in decision making and financial management of the microfinance projects.

The project was completed in 2011 as it was observed that there were now other projects being run in the region with similar aims and goals during the final evaluation.

MMA is instead now focusing on maternal and child health in the hospital and surrounding villages, in line with the WHO Millennium Development Goal 4: Reduce child mortality and Goal 5: Improve maternal health.

A huge thank you to all of the donors who have supported the Kagera AIDS project over the past 8 years. We look forward to continuing to partner with you in future projects.
