Power Positive Support Community-Based Organization – Kenya

Based in Kendu Bay, Power Positive Support Community Based Organization (PPSCBO) champions children’s rights, supports people living with HIV, and works to ensure women’s property and inheritance rights, especially for those affected by HIV. PPSCBO provides psychological and material support to orphans and other children made vulnerable by the epidemic, with a focus on young girls. Home-based care programs and counseling are provided to people living with HIV, and sensitization and prevention programmes are offered to the wider community. A watchdog group focuses on protecting women’s property and inheritance rights and shares information to prevent land grabs, asset stripping and disinheritance, using peer-group forums. Under PPSCBO’s leadership, various support groups have been formed in the Karachuonyo East Division in Kenya, behavior change among the youth has been noted, and disclosure has reduced the level of stigma and discrimination in the community.
