The incidents of HIV in Tamil Nadu is extremely high. These children have contracted HIV through their mothers.
Annas Fund has supported a clinic for young girls who are HIV positive for some years, providing medicines, support and assisted with schooling.
We have had a very high percentage of examination success. These include IT, Pharmacy etc.
In 2018 all 4 children taking the approriate examinations passed well with 100% pass rate.
Additionally we support an outreach program which benefits around 150 children in the surrounding areas.
This scheme is classed by the World Health Organisation as vital and looking at this and a few other projects (some in Africa, Far East and India) as a potential for allowing HIV children to survive.
