The Nata Village blog was set up two years ago and aims to raise awareness for the African way of life and the needs of the village – according to the founders donations to Africa often do not reach remote parts of Botswana like Nata. In particular HIV/AIDS is having a devastating effect on the people living in the village, which has a population of just 5000.

The main focus is on AIDS/HIV prevention and treatment activities, but there are also many stories and photos showing Nata’s people, their customs and how they live.
