Step By Step Africa in Ghana

 

Since our founding in 2006, Step By Step Africa has worked closely with Paul Aborik, our local partner in Ghana, located in the northern town of Sandema.

Working with Paul, Step By Step Africa continues to focus on our goal or alleviating the suffering caused by HIV/AIDS. To this end, we have launched and continue to operate many initiatives. Initially, our focus was on providing free HIV tests as close to 70% of people with HIV are unaware of it, and thus do not receive any treatment or take any precautions.

Since then, we have expanded to include providing food aid during a drought (2007), distributing over 100 malaria bed nets to people with HIV/AIDS and AIDS orphans, and supporting HIV positive mothers with baby formula. Most recently, we collaborated with Paul to develop radio awareness ads that are now being played regularly in the district.
