Imani Village - After School Program and Summer Program

Imani Village is a program for school-aged children and teenagers, most of whom are living with HIV. Imani Village is a fun, nurturing, loving, safe, supportive program.

Our children grow physically, emotionally and socially.
We grow together.
We become a community.

Many wonderful kids with HIV cannot go to other camps, because of their medical conditions. But, because we're here, they can go to camp, and they can swim, hike, whale-watch, paint, macramé, picnic, pick apples, see magic shows, zoos, museums, horses and playgrounds. All in 5 special weeks.

And, Imani Village is free. This way, kids can come to camp whether or not they have money. The generosity of very special people in the world makes that possible. At Imani Village, we believe in making dreams come true. If you do, too, or if you know of a child who needs us, please call us. We're here.
