FUNDACIÓN CASA GAMI – COLOMBIA

Founded in 1997, Fundación Casa Gami has been a pioneering organization. Fundación Casa Gami’s specific mandate has been to work with families and women affected or infected by HIV/AIDS. The Foundation offers counseling and support through six individually tailored programs. There is an intense focus on extending support to women and children in an effort to counter the marginalized position these groups generally occupy within Columbian society. Fundación Casa Gami is now gradually encouraging the participation and support of men, especially in terms of the role that they play within the family. By addressing the gender misconceptions that often exist in Latin-America, Fundación Casa Gami works to improve the general level of awareness of HIV and AIDS and empower their target group.
