SFH Annual Review
available on the Strategies for Hope website: www.stratshope.org
This Annual Review documents the activities of the Strategies for Hope
Trust during the past year. It also summarises the achievements of the
project since it began in 1989 and pays tribute to the many organisations
and individuals who have supported it since that time.
During the past 27 years the project has produced and distributed over
1.25 million copies of information and training materials on
community-based strategies of HIV prevention, care and support, and also
on gender issues. These materials include 17 case study books, the
Stepping Stones training package, 8 films and the 10 workbooks which
constitute the Called to Care toolkit. Many of these materials are
available on the Strategies for Hope website in French, Portuguese and
Kiswahili, as well as the original English, and can be downloaded free of
This is the last Annual Review of the Strategies for Hope initiative,
because we are about to retire. We are confident, however, that the impact
of the project will continue to be felt in many countries, especially in
sub-Saharan Africa, for years to come.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the many partner
organisations and individuals – mostly in sub-Saharan Africa but also in
Asia, Europe and Latin America – who have contributed in many different
ways to the success of the project. These include, for example, donor
organisations, churches and community groups, NGOs and HIV support groups,
writers and film producers, publishers and distributors, illustrators and
translators, and the many thousands of volunteers who have made excellent
use of Strategies for Hope materials in the course of their work at

Day, on December 1, our thoughts are turning to everyone living with or
affected by HIV and AIDS.
The first Strategies for Hope materials were published nearly 26 years
ago, in December 1989. Over 1.2 million copies of these materials have
since been distributed.
As you may know, we shall no longer be distributing hard copies of our
materials. However, many of our materials will be freely downloadable on
our website: www.stratshope.org . This already applies to all ten of the
English language editions of ‘Called to Care’ workbooks, and all ‘Called
to Care’ workbooks available in French and Portuguese. Kiswahili editions
are in the process of being added to the website.
We also plan to make five Strategies for Hope DVDs freely downloadable on
our website. ‘What can I do?’ – the video about Canon Gideon Byamugisha –
is already available online:
Finally, the latest Annual Review of the Strategies for Hope Trust is now
available on our website:
