TAOST is a Ugandan NGO
that was started in 2003 after realizing that a large number of orphans had no one to
take care of them. Moreover, many widows who had lost their husbands to HIV/AIDS were
not able to support their families. TAOST therefore was founded in order to support
families affected by HIV/AIDS so as to positively transform them in sustainable ways
through capacity building and advocacy.
After careful consideration
of the primary causes for the spread of HIV/AIDS - poverty, unhealthy cultural practices,
and gender imbalance - TAOST has come up with an integrated approach to solving this
TAOST therefore adds its contribution to the existing efforts to lessen the effects and blow of HIV/AIDS through various activities that include among others entrepreneurial skills development, education for the orphans, and home-based care for people living with HIV/AIDS.
