The China AIDS Walk was launched by the Beijing Gender Health Education Institute. Driven by a collaborative network of different organizations, the China AIDS Walk raises awareness about HIV/AIDS and raises funds for social projects working on HIV/AIDS issues throughout its different project phases, including mobilization, participatory fundraising, training, promotion and walking on the Great Wall.
We believe that social progress is achieved not by a few people doing much, but by many people doing a little. Adopting the “Friends Ask Friends” (FAF) fundraising model, the China AIDS Walk engages the help of every participant to distribute HIV/AIDS related knowledge and promote the ideas behind the China AIDS Walk. The China AIDS Walk hopes to help people living with HIV/AIDS not only by raising funds, but also by eliminating discrimination and by promoting the idea that everyone can contribute to the public well-being.
