CRAZY LOVE AFRICA’S MISSION

The mission of Crazy Love Africa is to serve, restore, empower, and strengthen women in western Uganda who are HIV positive, single mothers. As a result, we will touch the children in their care, through education, community, and sustainable job creation. By working alongside women as global sisters, we create change, while addressing inequality, strengthening families, and communities.

Our initiatives build confidence in such a meaningful way in the lives of our sisters. We are able to address inequality while promoting economic and social transformations. This is giving women opportunities and elevating their voices.  – Jess Wiederholt

IMPACT OF HIV

The epidemic is firmly established in the general population of Uganda. As of 2018, the estimated HIV prevalence among adults (aged 15 to 49) stood at 5.7%. Women are disproportionately affected, with 8.8% of adult women living with HIV compared to 4.3% of men. 

BASIC FACTS

>  HIV is a chronic but manageable disease.
> HIV medicines can’t cure HIV, but they help people with HIV live long, healthy lives.
> People with HIV take a combination of HIV medicines every day.
> HIV can only be transmitted three ways:  Unprotected sex, sharing of needles, and mother to child: pregnancy or breastfeeding

U=U

If a person is undetectable by taking medications every day they are suppressed and the virus cannot be transmitted!

This is called: U=U,
Undetectable = Untransmittable.

THE BATTLE

HIV the virus that causes AIDS is still taking the lives of individuals globally. 

TO WIN THE BATTLE WE MUST COMBAT:
> Stigma, isolation, & depression
> Non-Compliance
> Fear of getting tested
> Access to antiretroviral therapy (ART or ARVs)

OUR PROGRAMS

We believe women are deserving of our effort, attention, respect, and love. Since 2014, 25 women have been empowered with a micro-business grant to provide them an opportunity for a sustainable income.
