Commitment by

Keep a Child Alive

In 2009, Keep a Child Alive (KCA) committed to establishing a series of safe-houses for vulnerable women and children in India infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. To date, KCA has focused its efforts on scaling up safe-houses and orphan care homes in Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra State, and Rajasthan, where they have provided to those in the most desperate need of shelter, medical care, proper nutrition, and psycho-social support.
As of 2011, over 1500 people has directly benefitted from KCA's comprehensive HIV/AIDS services and over 20 children orphaned by AIDs have been provided shelter in a safe home in Rajasthan. KCA intends to continue its commitment by helping to scale up the projects in India it currently supports, and expanding its work further throughout India to serve many more people in need.
