Planet Aid has previously worked with Humana People to People Botswana (HPP-Botswana) to assist those living with HIV/AIDS and other epidemics and help communities strengthen local development.
HPP-Botswana began operating a Child Aid project in the nickel/copper mining town of Selibi-Phikwe in February 2006. Child Aid is an adaptable model that organizes development initiatives and builds capacity based on the needs of each community. The Child Aid program there trained the guardians of orphaned children in child health and childcare and connected with the children through youth clubs.
With the support of Planet Aid and other organizations, HPP-Botswana implemented HOPE projects to address the high incidence rate of HIV/AIDS. HOPE established community centers that help those affected by HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and sexually transmitted diseases.
