The CARE for AIDS center in the Mawenzi community launched in September of 2017. Mawenzi is a slum community on the outskirts of Dar es Salaam with an estimated population of 78,500. Community members live in informal settlements in the densely populated slum and have very little access to basic utilities like clean water and electricity.

The CARE for AIDS center in Mawenzi operates in partnership with Gospel Assembly Mission Church under the leadership of Pastor Perpetua Bayege Simon (pictured below) and center counselors Christina Mayunga and Kingsley Mwakinyali.
