Vision: To create an AIDS-free generation
Mission: To harness the power of football to engage and educate kids how to lead successful, HIV free lives

HIV /AIDS is the number one global health challenge, and in the absence of a cure, prevention has to be the main stay in the struggle against AIDS.

Africaid has created a truly unique HIV prevention 'package called WhizzKids United (WKU). WKU has been founded on the principal that knowledge alone will not prevent HIV. Instead kids are taught life-skills that inform, motivate and influence their behaviour bringing about a positive behavioural change designed to prevent new HIV infections. By combining each life skill with football, integrating it fully into the programme, and playing on their love for the beautiful game, ensures the kids are fully engaged and has the potential to truly create an AIDS free generation.
