They reach the youth of sub-Saharan Africa whose lives are affected by AIDS. They help tomorrow's responsible parents by helping to prepare the youth of today. They vest youth with the preventive knowledge needed to stay alive and teach them to share that knowledge with their peers. They build extended family support networks in local villages and communities to deliver education and healthcare to children affected by AIDS. They create healthcare awareness by building basic health plans with village women and their families. These plans help them to prevent HIV/AIDS, Malaria and water-borne diseases.
