In Uganda, close to 1.6 million people live with HIV out of whom 96,000 are children below 14 years. Orphans due to Aids are estimated to be 660,000 yet the country loses 28,000 people to Aids annually according to the study by UNAIDS. SGBV is another dangerous vice that is killing families and women especially young vulnerable girls in Kyangwali. Community health issues like hygiene and sanitation are a major cause of sicknesses and deaths especially among children in Kyangwali. Kyangwali refugee settlement is a multi-cultural area that needs multi-cultural approach to solve common problems such as HIV/AIDS and SGBV.

P4T carries out occasional Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement and the host community. In the 90 90 90 HIV/AIDS strategy, P4T focuses on the first 90 of ensuring that 90% of people are tested and know their status. In creating awareness and sensitizing people about Community Health, HIV/AIDS and SGBV, P4T carries out sports activities like female football competitions, plays and dramas, community health campaigns, as well as distribution of health support materials like soap, clothes, condoms, water guard and drinking water storage cans. We carry out these activities to fight ignorance, misconception, stigmatization, recklessness, negative attitudes and loss of hope. The implementation of P4T projects is bringing a long lasting sustainable solution to most of these problems.
