Peer Education Programme Against Aids

PEPAIDS is a small international development charity, based in the North West of the UK, in Manchester. Our activities are focussed in Zambia (where we work with a local Zambian NGO) and in the UK.

Founded 2001

  • Mission statement

    PEPAIDS’ mission is to contribute to the reduction of poverty and HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa and to raise awareness, both within the affected communities and internationally, of the issues surrounding poverty and HIV/AIDS.

  • Aims

    Peer Education Programme Against Aids aims to:

    • Our focus is on empowering the most vulnerable in society, such as women, children, orphans and people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA).
    • PEPAIDS does not want to create a dependency on hand-outs, but to mobilise communities to be able to use the resources they already have and become independent, no longer reliant on outside help.
    • We aim to educate people with the facts about HIV/AIDS and equip them with the skills to work together and use the resources they have. Ultimately, we aim to empower communities to help themselves.
    • Our work in Zambia aims to enable people to care for their sick, provide for their children and orphans, value women and embrace their contribution, generate income and invest in future generations.
