Ambassadors of Goodwill for AIDS Patients Everywhere 

In India, 2.1 million people are living with AIDS[1]. As well as new cases are still being reported in the country and some children are still being born with HIV each year. It is unfortunate that many of such children don’t get the chance to benefit from the right treatment

AGAPE provides shelter for children from families where one or more parents are suffering with HIV/AIDS and don’t have any means of support, or whose parents have already died of HIV/AIDS. The NGO operates its own school as well to provide quality education to all of its children, including those who are HIV positive and therefore would not be accepted in most local schools. AGAPE takes all children regardless of caste, creed and religion. Seven children’s homes, each for a specific gender, age group and HIV status are managed by the NGO. Most recently, AGAPE opened a new home to provide the dedicated attention needed by HIV-positive babies.
