The Hillcrest AIDS Centre Trust (HACT )is a faith-based, multi-faceted, non-profit organization in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. The mission of the organization is and always has been to show unconditional love to all those impacted by HIV/AIDS in a practical way. All aspects of the HACT project have arisen out of an observed need. That is, where a need has been witnessed, a plan has been put in place to attempt to meet the need in a way that uplifts and empowers, rather than judges and demoralizes.
Woza Moya is the income generation project of the Hillcrest AIDS Centre. Started over 10 years ago with 5 beaders making AIDS ribbons at a local church. The centre now supports more than 350 crafters. All the crafters have come to us through the Hillcrest AIDS Centre’s home-based careers that serve in the Valley of 1000 Hills between Pietermaritzburg, and Durban, South Africa. Participants are trained in beadwork and sewing.
