HIV Care and Support

Most of the people living in the impoverished communities of the Overstrand are "affected" by HIV in one way or another.

The HIV Care and Support Programme focuses on 3 main areas, Awareness, Prevention, Care and Support.

Our Social Workers visit the local schools and make presentations to the various classes, and they also conduct special "Support Groups" that focus on all aspects of HIV with an emphasis on awareness and normalizing the disease by reducing the stigma. The programme also addresses prevention and encourages people to get tested and "Know their Status", providing the necessary counseling and support "pre" and "post" testing.

The HRT "Social Enterprise"

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust has developed a "sustainability strategy" to limit the challenges of getting "grant funding" from government, funding agencies and business in these difficult economic times. The strategy is built around the establishment of a "Social Enterprise" in line with global trends.


Non-Profit Organisations - The Current Funding Model is NOT Sustainable

Why ? What are the alternatives ?

The Hermanus Rainbow Trust, like many other NPO’s / NGO’s, is threatened by the current "grant funding" models in South Africa, where most NPO’s are totally dependent on "grant funding from Government, Funding Agencies, Business, Individual Donors, Sponsors and fund raising events.
