About Us

Founded by returned Peace Corps Volunteers, Education Fights AIDS (EFA) International is a community grassroots organization that works to give African youth the skills they need to live positively with HIV/AIDS. The mission of EFA International is to promote the successful future of African children and youth infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS through education and empowerment.

In order to fulfill this mission, EFA International strives to achieve the following goals: • To improve the psychosocial development, health literacy, professional capacity, and financial autonomy of African children and youth who are infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS by: - Providing educational and employment opportunities; - Building core leadership values and community through a network; - Promoting the value of “living positively” with HIV/AIDS while reducing stigma; and • To inform and engage communities around the world about HIV/AIDS in Africa.

EFA International implements activities in three programmatic domains: (1) the HIV+ Youth Empowerment Network in Northern Cameroon; (2) the Volunteer Service Learning Project in Cameroon; and (3) the Rebero Orphan Center Empowerment program in Rwanda.
