Positive Women Network of Rajasthan (PWNR+) seeks to improve quality of life of Women Living with HIV/AIDS (WLHA) and Children Living with HIV/AIDS (CLHA). The organization aims to do this by providing them with appropriate opportunities for self-development and empowerment. PWNR+ also focuses on increasing their visibility and promoting a positive image of people living with HIV/AIDs.
Child Care and Support: PWNR+’s aim is to sustain the life of the HIV infected and affected orphan children through the Aashray Care Home. Through a special home care program, WLHA and CLHA are taught that proper quality care is the key to management of HIV/AIDS cases and it includes regular medication, meditation, good quality food, yoga, and education. A 2 storey building accommodates 50 children with amenities like health care center, library, counselling centre, skill development center, and entertainment space. Hot cooked meals rich in nutrients are also provided. All HIV infected kids are registered with the ART Centre located at SMS Hospital and ARV treatment is given free of cost under the National Program.
Education for HIV Infected & Affected Children: The sponsorship provided by Khetri Trust has been instrumental in ensuring that all children get an opportunity of attending formal school with other children. The organization also provides educational sponsorships to disadvantaged children belonging to economically backward families. The NGO has facilitated free admissions of 6 children under the Right to Education (RTE).
Old-age programs: The NGO has initiated programs for aged people who are deserted and abandoned by their family. These programs include care giving services along with good quality food, clothes and shelter. Over 100 people have benefitted from these programs so far.
VIHAAN Care & Support Program: The VIHAAN Care & Support Program was initiated under the Global Fund in Jaipur District. The major goal of the program is to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV. The CSC Program has been crucial in facilitating the linkage between PLHAs and the ART center in order to ensure timely checks ups and that drug adherence is maintained.
