After the realization of the devastating effects caused by HIV/AIDS to our communities but especially to children & our young youths, GIVE A CHILD HOPE was born out of the desire to bring HIV/AIDS awareness especially to sexually active youths as they are the ones who are most at risk of contracting the diseases& to break the stigma that surrounds children affected &affected by HIV/AIDS Harambe an NGO that deals with youth’s development & job placement for youths around South Africa in partnership with Greystone Accountants decided to host an event on the 24TH November2018 on World AIDS day.

Short term goals
It Is a sad reality that most of our young women indulge in sex so that they are able to look after their families risking them from getting infected by HIV/AIDS GIVE A CHILD HOPE will identify girls & young women who are unemployed & give them the opportunity to employment hence cutting down the risk of promiscuity which will lead to contracting HIV/AIDS.
Our wish this year is to bring different people from all walks of life to be part of this great event & make a positive impact to those living positively living with AIDS, to those affected by HIV/AIDS & To Instill a sense of discipline especially to our sexually active youths.
