Where we work

The Stephen Lewis Foundation works with community-based organizations working to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Since 2003, we have funded more than 1100 initiatives, partnering with over 300 community-based organizations in the 15 African countries hardest hit by the pandemic.

These grassroots groups are the lifeline for their communities: they provide counselling and education about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distribute food, medication and other necessities; reach the sick and vulnerable through home-based health care; help orphans and vulnerable children access education and work through their grief; and support grandmothers caring for their orphaned grandchildren.
