Game Enables People to Speak Openly

May 23, 2013

Located in Mbeya, Tanzania, HOPE provides services for orphans and people with HIV.  It has used Game for the World for almost two years!  Alan, Adam, Uswege and I met  with HOPE’s program coordinator, Moosa Sinwenga, and learned that HOPE has 225 people who are receiving home-based care and 167 orphans who live in foster homes and receive tuition assistance, uniforms and lunch at school.

Street kids come to the center and play Game for the World with the orphans. Moosa says that the Game has increased their level of awareness and given them confidence to talk about HIV/AIDS.

An HIV support group meets weekly and plays Game for the World before their meetings. Adam and Uswege introduced the Game to HOPE in August 2011 and were moved by how the Game enabled people to talk openly about their status and the impact it has on their lives.  Moosa says that the Game enables people to speak up and find solutions to their problems. “The Game helps them feel ‘normal’ and ‘at home’ with their status, rather than alone, isolated and stigmatized.” HOPE has requested that we supply them with 300 copies of the Game so that they can continue using it in their center , with Sunday school youth and in Sunday school staff workshops all over Tanzania.

Our work in Tanzania is supported by a grant from the Zuckerman Community Outreach Foundation in Tucson, Arizona and by the generosity of family and friends. If you want to help us give HOPE some hope, please consider a donation at our web site, www.gamefortheworld.com.
