The Big Give Christmas Challenge is now over! 83 people took part raising an AMAZING £9,798. A most heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this possible, including our wonderful pledgers who provided the matched funding.
We're going through tough economic times and we can't thank everyone enough for giving what they can, supporting, sharing, and fundraising this Christmas.
The money raised will provide training and education for children, parents and community leaders across 5 states to accelerate progress towards ending the HIV pandemic in Nigeria and to create a more gender equal society. This work will include:
- Community HIV education, testing, counselling and support in accessing antiretroviral medication
- Dynamic, age-appropriate relationships and sex education for vulnerable children though clubs in schools, churches and orphanages
- Providing access to high quality antenatal care to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV
- Community training in gender equality and better parenting to tackle underlying drivers of HIV transmission
If you didn't get a chance to take part in the Big Give but would still like to support the vital HIV prevention work in Nigeria, please do still give. We still need funding for this work so your gift would be very much appreciated - the only difference is your gift will now no longer be doubled.
Please just click the button below and tell us in the message box that your gift is for Nigeria.
