Who we are: APPA+ is a HIV positive network of People Living with HIV/AIDS, formed and supporting each other towards improving quality life of People Living with HIV by promoting Livelihoods, Health, Education and Nutritional Interventions. APPA + (Asha Positive People Association) is registered as a Community based organisation (CBO) under Societies act in the district, Khammam, Telengana State, India. Project details: APPA+ identifies in many occasions that creating and promoting livelihoods for HIV + people will make them more confident in leading life without depending on others till the time they live. Support receiving from local donors in terms of food supplements/medicine will no longer find a viable solution unless teaching them how to 'fishing it'. Keeping in mind of compromised health conditions of HIV+ people, found a sustainable livelihood model/project 'saree falls and petti coats making unit' run and managed by group of HIV+ people. The unit will not only give them feed but more importantly confidence in life and respect in the society. To start a 'Saree falls and Petticoats making unit' thru the people living with HIV in Khammam dist., Telengana State, India. Make the HIV+ people empower socially thru financial independency and give them a dignified life. Lasting Impact with the proposed project: The impact will be in many folds right from health to economics and social to psychological; however, the 'saree falls and petti coats making unit' would bring a positive and healthy change in the entire community of HIV+ people in the District, State and in the Country towards self-independency rather than donor-dependency. The below are some specific ways of impact going to be created; - Healthy way of life would be possible as most of the time will be engaged in the work which will not allow to think about their disease.
