F2F judiciously uses small grants to provide the chance to learn. In January 2013, we opened the SCC*F2F Community Center in Siem Reap, Cambodia — 14 months after we first asked our donors for help. The Center is already a place for adults to learn organic farming, for children to acquire a basic education, and young adults to try traditional music and dance.
From “we help them” to “they help themselves”

About the Face-to-Face AIDS Project
The Face to Face MissionF2F empowers impoverished people affected by extreme poverty and diseases like HIV/AIDS in Malawi and Cambodia to strengthen their communities and better their lives. In Cambodia, F2F turns the stigmatized into role models with the confidence to help others through schools and community centers that provide educational, cultural, vocational, and organic gardening and composting training. In Malawi, F2F's innovative, multi-program strategy benefits the majority of people in a community as they engage in organic composting and multi-crop farming, tree nurseries, leadership trainings, healthcare trainings, and youth programs. Through this learning-focused approach, F2F nurtures stricken communities to gain the mindset, skills, and confidence to help themselves.
Helping people in need by building stronger communitiesF2F believes the best way to overcome HIV and poverty is to strengthen the ability of communities to care for their own. Working closely with village chiefs, local leaders, and neighborhood groups, F2F nurtures projects that offer long-lasting, self-sustaining support to vulnerable individuals and their communities in some of the poorest countries in the world.
Raising awareness and generating supportIn the United States, F2F raises awareness of the global AIDS pandemic and its role in extreme poverty. Since 2004, F2F has traveled to schools, community groups, museums, and other venues to show the AIDS PhotoMosaics. These unique installations put individual faces on an epidemic of hard-to-fathom proportions, reminding us all of the people and stories behind the statistics.
