Founded by Dennis Akagha and Chinasa Imo, JustCare Development Initiative is creating an HIV-free future through entrepreneurship and programs and by discouraging stigma and discrimination among young people living with HIV/AIDS. Young people living with HIV are finding it especially hard to access employment, even though they have the necessary competencies and skills. They are often denied employment if they are found to be HIV-positive; hence, Project ‘Adima’ is a craft-work vocational skill training for youths (18-35) living with HIV/AIDS in Isolo Community of Lagos state so as to provide alternative opportunities and sources of income to earn a living for themselves and their households.
