Mission: To mobilize and inspire students to fight AIDS in Africa.
Vision: Tens of thousands of students will raise money for community-based organizations in Africa and educate their peers about the heartbreaking pandemic. FACE AIDS will develop support groups and income-generating projects for Africans affected by AIDS and give grants to innovative organizations working on HIV/AIDS prevention and care. Our grants will allow the most effective organizations to succeed, expanding innovation on the ground. By putting a face on AIDS, we will foster a generation of Americans who will continue to fight AIDS through policy, charity, and leadership.
Specifically, the University of Dayton chapter realizes that HIV/AIDS does not only affect Africa but the entire world, it is a disease of the human family. Thus we advocate for all people of every culture and nation.
