The Stephen Lewis Foundation
is an organization founded by Stephen Lewis
that assists mostly AIDS
projects in Africa
. Though on some occasions, the foundation has provided larger projects with money, it mostly gives funds to small, frontline groups and charities.
The foundation has four main goals:
- To provide care at the community level to women who are ill and struggling to survive, so that their lives can be free from pain, humiliation and indignity
- To assist orphans and other AIDS-affected children in every possible way, from the payment of school fees to the provision of food
- To support the unrecognized heroes of Africa, the grandmothers, who bury their own children and care for their orphan grandchildren;
- To support associations of people living with HIV/AIDS - courageous men and women who have openly declared their status.
