Documenting the HIV/AIDS Crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa

Karen Ande has been chronicling the AIDS epidemic and its effects on children in sub-Saharan Africa since 2002. Her work has taken her from rural villages to city slums in Kenya and Rwanda, where she photographs people who daily face the challenges of AIDS and its impact on those they know and love.

She works with the very poor, with people who rarely benefit from large-scale government intervention, but are helped enormously by organizations like Firelight Foundation and G.R.A.C.E. USA that support the work of grassroots community activists.

Not content to remain an observer, Karen has raised approximately $60,000 in donations for several of the projects you will find in the web pages that I designed for Karen. Thanks to Karen’s partner Jeff Johnson for the coding on her web site. In addition she and her work have been featured in newspapers and magazines, as well as in a 2005 ABC television special about AIDS in Africa on the program “Beyond the Headlines.”
