SHARE exists to fundraise to buy the necessary items to help support the Waterburg Welfare Society while raising awareness on campus about the prevalence and severity of the Sub-Saharan AIDS crisis. We have already raised over $900 this academic year!
The name of the organization is Students Helping AIDS Relief and Education (SHARE). SHARE has two intents. The first is to increase the awareness and understanding of AIDS around the Carnegie Mellon University community; SHARE intends to convey how the AIDS virus is contracted and the pervasiveness and severity of the epidemic worldwide. Our second intent is to raise money for the Waterberg Welfare Society, an organization located in the rural area of Vaalwater, South Africa. The Waterberg Welfare Society has initiated AIDS awareness, education, testing and prevention drugs as well as food and basic health care to those afflicted with the virus.
SHARE is a non-profit organization that holds only self-sustaining events whose proceeds go to providing an African AIDS related philanthropy with financial, medical and/or nutritional support.
