The end of December 2012 was the end of not only the year, but also YCI’s partnership with the Faraja Trust Fund in Morogoro, Tanzania. YCI has partnered with Faraja since 2005 to support its mission as an HIV/AIDS and community focused organization. From starting out with only three volunteers when it was founded in 1991, Faraja has grown into a vibrant institution with over 100 volunteers including peer educators, home care nurses, credit advisers and life skills trainers. Since partnering with YCI, Faraja has engaged in programming activities including preventive HIV/AIDS education, HIV/AIDS care and counseling, income generation support for out-of-school youth, encouraging neighborhood women’s associations and providing access to legal and human rights support.
