The initiative was born when world traveller Jon Rawlinson met up with Melody Jenkins who serves as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Nata. ?¢‚Ç¨?ìBoth were frustrated with the fact that enormous amounts of money are pouring into Africa yet little money is getting to the village level and to those who need it most.?¢‚Ç¨¬ù Jon made three visits to Nata and filmed a documentary about HIV/AIDS in the village. The documentary led the way to the website.
The website shows the Nata Clinic, featuring PLWA?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s, village life, youth groups, the Kgosi?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s (chiefs) and the professionals involved in the fight to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS. The site hopes to profile the specific needs of the village and give its visitors an opportunity to help.
