For the past year, As the Keep A Child Alive Chapter Leader at the University of Houston, my team and I have been on the mission of raising funds for anti-retroviral treatments for orphaned children in Africa. Keep a Child Alive is an urgent response to the AIDS pandemic ravaging our world, providing lifesaving HIV treatment and care to over 20,000 children and their families in Africa and India. Over the past year, 390,000 African children have died from AIDS. That's the equivalent of a child a minute. Think about that a moment. A child a minute. Someone's son or daughter. Someone's brother or sister. The hope, the dream of life snuffed out even before he or she had a chance to truly explore the world. I know most people will read that sentence, feel a little sad, and then go on with their lives. It's not our problem after all. And even if it were, what could we possibly do? You're just an average person, minding his or her business. Or maybe you don't consider yourself average, but you still don't see any solutions. But what I've come to realize while interacting with major players in the global health world is that those who make a difference are just like you and me. Of course, everyone has heard that a thousand times. What's hearing it one more time going to do? Can normal people like you and me come together and actually start something? And that, in essence, is what the Dreams Come True Campaign is all about.
