Together! ACT Now
managed by k. Horne
Together! ACT Now (T!AN) has taken an innovative approach to bringing awareness and prevention of HIV in Malawi.
i.e.- would you rather sit and listen to a doctor lecture, or watch a play/movie. With all due respect to the Doctors, we believe most people would rather take the more engaging, interesting route, and that's where we come in.
In 2008, 16 year old Kyle Horne, did much research, writing and development for what has become our village outreach program. In 2009 T!AN started working in villages in Malawi taking a play, loosely based on Dickens' A Christmas Carol, performed by local Malawians, into villages with HIV testers and counselors. We hold a day of plays, events, discussions, and free-onsite HIV testing. From day one we could not have been happier with the response, and turn out! We will get anywhere from 200-2,000 people in even the most rural of villages.
In the last few years we have educated over 60,000 people on HIV/AIDS & tested over 4,300 people for HIV in rural villages who have limited access to modern technology & medicine.
Together! ACT Now is different because we act as a conduit for Malawians to help Malawians. Providing the resources, projects and support to facilitate a movement within the community. We have branched out to also support re-building unusable primary schools, and supporting children and young adults with special needs.
