Over 10,000 Reasons to Celebrate!

Last week, CARE for AIDS celebrated their 10th birthday! 10 years ago, the very first center was launched in Kenya. Over these 10 years, they have grown to 48 centers across Kenya and Tanzania and have seen over 10,000 clients graduate from the program to live a life beyond AIDS, one that is no longer defined by their HIV status. Each of these clients and their families is reason alone to celebrate what CARE for AIDS is doing and with the goal of empowering 100,000 more clients in the next 10 years, I don't think we'll run out of reasons to wear party hats and eat cupcakes for a long time coming!

We asked some of our clients at Waithaka center to help us celebrate 10 years with a special photo shoot! Lots of laughter that day! Plus some homemade cupcakes that looked a little better than they tasted. (We tried!)
