Ibhongolwethu, in partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières and Cirque du Soleil since 2005. Zip Zap presents a free show on World AIDS Day with youth living with HIV and youth from other Zip Zap projects, for the broader community. The message is one of acceptance, resilience and hope
The Ubuntu Project was established in 2012, in partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF – Doctors Without Borders) as a means of providing an innovative and alternative patient support programme, catering for children living with HIV and who receive anti-retroviral treatment at a clinic in Khayelitsha. The Ubuntu programme is provided once per week (on Wednesday mornings) and intends to deliver activities that create a fun environment as a base for children to play and learn like other, healthy children; to include trained and friendly instructors; to create a sense of belonging, to show that there is support available; and to deliver a positive experience that children will associate with visiting the clinic - increasing their willingness to attend clinic appointments and thereby improving treatment adherence. The presence and availability of Zip Zap’s programme activities is also meant to provide a helpful support service/ relief for parents and caregivers.
