    Dove foundation has a strong sense of community ownership, The founders are highly committed and passionate about their course, Am glad to have met them .Rckshaw puller Community members were volunteers. Volunteers are members. Members are clients. Clients are volunteers.

    As an Activist this kind of critical mass is achieved through support ,I think at this time that we can fuel HIV prevention efforts, challenge stigma, and simultaneously advanced massive advocacy efforts and social justice
