Who’s Benefitting: Proceeds from NextAid’s World AIDS Day events will support current projects in Africa, which include constructing an eco-friendly, micro-enterprise facility for a street youth project in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya; supporting the education of orphaned children and youth in South Africa by providing school uniforms and supplies; and establishing critical maternal health programs for girls and women in Sierra Leone.
