About

About
Africa Wellness Initiative (AWI) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in San Leandro, California.  AWI is a grassroots organization that grows through social networking.  As we grow, there are endless possibilities for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) who are victims of Mother to Child HIV/AIDS Transmission, their mothers and those who are impacted by other life threating disease.

Mission
Providing resources and assist with sustainability measures for wellness partners in the Southern Sub-Saharan Region of Africa that benefit those impacted by HIV/AIDS and other life threatening diseases. Africa Wellness Initiative accomplishes its mission by collaborating with individuals, entities and other non-profit organizations that complement it with its robust volunteer and donor networks.

AWI carefully selects wellness partners to carry out its mission and currently our pilot programs are in Zimbabwe. AWI also provides direct funding to widows and grandmothers who are willing to stay at home and raise children. These families become self-sufficient through income generating projects.
