Even though 25 percent of South Africa’s population suffers from AIDS, the people of Cape Town will not let the disease destroy their hopes and dreams. In fact, a Christian job creation program, African Hope Crafts (AHC), specifically reaches out to men and women who are HIV positive and unable to find work. While they create jewelry, purses, scarves, and other items they learn proper health practices and receive encouragement from each other. The spokesperson for AHC writes “Just giving HIV-positive sufferers a reason to get out of bed each day is a real joy. Our time together is about much more than the money they earn.”
