Hi everyone – thanks for checking out the official SLF blog.
My name is Gillian Mathurin, and I’m a Communications Officer with the Stephen Lewis Foundation. I’m here in Africa with Thomas Nybo (a fabulous videographer) for the next few weeks to visit a handful of outstanding organizations funded by the Stephen Lewis Foundation in South Africa and Uganda.
Tomorrow, we’ll be joined by Stephen Lewis and Aissatou Diajhate, SLF’s Director of Programmes. From July 21-29, we’ll all be visiting with organizations that are doing remarkable work to turn the tide of HIV and AIDS in Africa. Throughout the trip, I’ll be posting blog entries, tweeting and keeping you updated on what we’re seeing at each project. While we’re here, we’re also filming a series of short feature stories for our website. Stay tuned!
