In Shona (a vernacular language of Zimbabwe), 'Mutsa' literally means to 'wake up' and at its essence, this is what Meet Mutsa
is all about. We work in London, UK and Mukuni, Zambia to create awareness of the HIV pandemic, primarily in sub-saharan Africa, and generate movements towards its prevention using creative and engaging educational methods. London
is home to our fundraising events. Here, our focus is on encouraging people to get up, give, do something
and have fun whilst doing so! Mukuni
is home to Catch Me I'm A Butterfly.
Catch Me I'm A Butterfly is a creative HIV prevention peer education project. Our intention is to leave behind the feelings of hopelessness that often arise when thinking of HIV/AIDS. The statistics surrounding the pandemic are overwhelming. It's hard to picture what the 22 million people living with HIV in sub-saharan Africa actually look like...what it really means.
takes a different approach. Our projects rely heavily on fusing fun, creativity and education to really get our young people to value their lives by being agents of change for themselves and those around them. So far we've delivered 'Catch Me I'm A Butterfly' in 2011 and early in 2013. The next trip will take place towards the end of this year. Please click here to keep up to date with our developments.
Thank you for visiting Meet Mutsa.
