Church Coordination

The strength of community in Zimbabwe towns resides with the church. HOPE for AIDS aims to challenge the churches to take responsibility for HIV and AIDS Care, Prevention and Education in order to maintain sustainability.
Most churches now have teaching on HIV and AIDS in their preaching schedule and regularly take up a collection to support the work. Angela (our Enabling Officer) seeks out churches not yet recognizing HIV and AIDS accountability and seeks to establish church committees at the local and distric levels to oversee the work. Each church integrates all the components of the HOPE for AIDS efforts (Home-Based Care, Orphan Care and Prevention). Operating teams are trained to raise funds, keep accounting books, write project proposals, and other skills required to keep a multi-disciplinary program successful. We also teach a module on HIV and AIDS yearly at a Bible College (Rusitu Bible College) to equip training pastors with information so that they will establish or continue the HIV and AIDS ministry when they begin in their new ministry positions.
