Our Fertile Ground and people like you support and inspire hope for youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS, as well as other health challenges. We bring people together who have demonstrated the value of living positively with HIV/AIDS. We aim to build a more positive and rewarding future.

We are changing the quality of life for many people – people who are faced every day with some of the most difficult challenges. We do this through our cycling program, residential camps, day camps, education, and hospital outreach.

Our Fertile Ground operates on the belief that every child counts, and that every child deserves a childhood rich with happy memories and positive experiences that they will carry with them throughout their adult life.

Providing disenfranchised children with these opportunities, in conjunction with skills training gives them a chance to better manage their illness, reduce the impact of stress on immune function, increase their ability to cope with the difficult and often violent communities they come from, and ultimately stop the cycle of HIV disease transmission through treatment adherence and behavior change.

Children are our greatest treasure and can be the most powerful agents of change, as they grow into adulthood feeling secure, confident,and attentive to themselves in the world.

See Us in Action!

Not only does Our Fertile Ground provide a safe haven for those affected by chornic illness but we are also creating a legacy for these young people. We are creating opportunities for a higher quality of life, employment, education and community.

Whether we are cycling, exploring, educating or playing, we aim to equip selected groups of youth the tools and resources they need to become productive adults in society. Various aspects of life are addressed but the most prominent one is inspiring young kids to enjoy sports, especially cycling, as an alternative to antisocial and risk-taking behavior.

This Is a Sustainable Venture That Can Be Reproduced.
