As part of hosting a broader Masibambisane summit for HIV/AIDS and TB community based organisations, CHoiCe Trust together with its sponsors would like to honour and acknowledge a few key people in the sector. Within this sector it is typically the BIG names and key people of large NGOs who receive the most visibility and acknowledgment for their efforts. This awards evening is dedicated to the real “UNSUNG HEROES” and tree shakers who with limited resources and little publicity provide care and support services within their communities. Their work helps to combat the impact and isolation that HIV/AIDS brings to communities within the Limpopo where so many lives are dominated by loss, death and community hardship.

Five special awards will be given to community care-givers who have demonstrated a remarkable ability to work beyond the call of duty. These will be people who have created an indelible mark within their communities through their tireless efforts in implementing innovative programmes.
