Women Fighting AIDS in Kenya is passionate about supporting the vulnerable, especially women and children affected and infected by the HIV and AIDS, from discrimination and stigma. We believe that the affected and infected by HIV and AIDS deserve a chance to live decent and dignified life without stigma or discrimination. We believe that everyone has a responsibility to act against any form of injustice. For more than two decades we have worked with like minded partners to overcome complex challenges and improve the lives of the affected and infected.
Women Fighting AIDS in Kenya (WOFAK) is a national non-governmental organization that was founded and registered in Kenya in 1994 by a group of women most of whom had tested positive for the HIV virus. The founding group had envisioned an entity that would provide them with a forum for mutual support and empowerment at a time when HIV related stigma and discrimination toward women was very high.
Since then, WOFAK has made tremendous achievement contributing significantly to national efforts aimed at HIV/AIDS prevention and to provide comprehensive care and support to women, youth and children living with and affected by HIV and AIDS, enabling them to lead better and quality life.
