My name is Julian Voscott and this July, I will be traveling to New Delhi to teach HIV-positive children English at the Naz Foundation Care Home. It has been an honor to have been invited by the Director of the Naz Foundation, Anjali Gopalan (listed on Time Magazine's 100 most influential individuals of 2012).
India is home to the world’s largest population of HIV orphans. Unfortunately, the number continues to rise. These children face staggering risks and typically die young or live on the streets. Naz India, working with HIV/AIDS since 1994, opened its arms to HIV-positive orphans to create a Care Home in 2001 after a child was abandoned at their doorstep. The Care Home was founded on the belief that all children have a fundamental right to a loving, fun-filled childhood with access to health, education, and a safe, stigma-free environment.
The Naz Care Home is supported primarily through donations. I encourage you to become part of their donor community and support the children with your financial contribution. When you donate you'll join the ranks of other supporters such as actor Richard Gere, performer Lady Gaga and former First Lady of France, Carla Bruni.
