FAIR addresses the challenges faced by children who have either been orphaned by AIDS or live with parents who are sick or dying from AIDS-related illnesses. FAIR is involved in implementing the Preventing Orphaning Initiative (TPOI), named Nuru ya Jamii (Light of the Family), a programme funded by Family Health International.
