The Southern Highlands Participatory Organization (SHIPO) is a Tanzanian Non Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Njombe, Tanzania.
Apart from different projects they have been implementing, HIV/AIDS and reproductive health is one of the areas they are also focusing in primary schools.
Youth Peer Health Education (YPHE) in primary schools, a program developed and pioneered by Highlands Hope Umbrella and its Canadian partner McGill University, has become a very popular approach to disseminate awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS, reproductive health and children’s rights issues to children and adolescents.
The FCS is a Tanzanian non-profit company, designed and funded by a group of like-minded development partners, and governed by an independent Board. It enables citizens to become a strong driving force for change in improving the democratic governance of Tanzania, in fighting poverty and in achieving a better quality life for all.
Recently, FCS has started working with Highlands Hope Umbrella based in Njombe Tanzania to implement Good governance project focusing Maternal and Child health service delivery improvements.
Highlands Hope Umbrella welcomes the adoption by the General Assembly of the United Nations on June 8 of a new and actionable Political Declaration on Ending AIDS including a set of specific targets to be reached by 2020 to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030.
