Nigeria: Group to Uplift HIV Centres With N16 Million

An Abuja-based charity group, Education as a Vaccine, which won the 2012 Stars Foundation Impact Award in the education category has promised to spend the $100,000 (15.6 million) prize to support youth centres in Benue and Abuja.

EVA Executive Director Fadekemi Akinfaderin-Agarua, who received the award in London, said Benue was chosen because of its high HIV prevalence rate and general indicators of maternal health in the north central zone.

Abuja, where EVA has been based since 2000, was chosen on grounds of corporate social responsibility.
