LiveLifeLoving

LiveLifeLoving isn’t your typical “learn about HIV” website. It’s an online portal where young people can share information and stories about HIV in safe and stigma-free forum. We are your first point of contact if you have been or know someone that was recently diagnosed with HIV. Whether we focus on the “hard” details like Treatment & Prevention or “soft” details like Dating & Sex, LiveLifeLoving gives you tools and support network to live life to the fullest with love.

Spread Trees, Not AIDS

Spread Trees, Not AIDS brings together two pressing issues of our time: HIV and environmental degradation. Together, these devastating forces are crippling communities, sapping resources, and disempowering the millions affected. Founded with local organizations in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, Spread Trees, Not AIDS is a sustainable and educational, action-based leadership programme through which we aim to inspire and mobilize youth for positive social change.

24 Hour Wake

Annually, high schools across Canada host the 24 Hour Wake. Participants stay awake for 24 hours and take part in a variety of activities to promote HIV awareness and generate greater interest towards local and international issues relating to HIV.

Youth-HIV Knowledge Exchange

In July 2009, LetsStopAIDS launched the Spread Trees, Not AIDS programme in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. The programme has sent international youth ambassadors to South African communities as a result of environmental degradation and HIV infection. LetsStopAIDS' international youth ambassadors lead educational workshops that highlighted the connection between HIV and the environment and empower South African youth to take action to be leaders in their communities.
