Sahaya Walks is an annual educational & fundraising family event that provides an opportunity for people of all ages –young and old- to make a difference in the lives of children and youth in India and Uganda who are living with HIV, by providing health-care, education, shelter and food. Many of these children are also orphans. 100% of the proceeds of Sahaya Walks will go towards the care of these children and youth.
