Mwayiwathu HIV Support Group

Mwayiwathu formed out of the HIV-positive Living Group with Village to Village, a local community based organization.  Mawyiwathu means "blessings" in the local language Chiyao.  The 15 members of this group are primarily AIDS widows who are living with the virus themselves.  They chose this name for their group because they see the work promised to them by Dsenyo as a blessing and a solution to some of the challenges they face.  The women in the group use their wages to pay for transport to the hospital to get their ARVs, buy food, and purchase fertilizer for growing crops.
