Welcome To TAPP

Tumaini AIDS Prevention Program

TAPP (Tumaini “hope” AIDS Prevention Program) is a grassroots response where friendship and creative empowerment is breathing new life in the midst of the AIDS crises. Hand-made artwork, local gardens and projects, and relationships of solidarity are seeking restoration in community care and the holistic power of hope.

This story is about AIDS. However, it is also a story about identity in a world where many are told they don’t matter and the transformation we all go through when we respond with compassion and celebrate moments of joy in a broken world.

Our History

TAPP Uganda was birthed out of a great need to care for all people in a place that left no one unaffected by the HIV virus. In 2004 David Wafula and Colleen Stevenson, long-term Church of God missionaries in Uganda, created TAPP (Tumaini “hope” AIDS Prevention Program).

Our Ministries

TAPP offers a five day training program to participants from all over Uganda and neighboring countries. They are either pastors or other community leaders willing to be volunteers. Some of these volunteers are living with HIV and AIDS themselves. They are then given tools and material to discuss what they learned in their own community.

Our Mission

TAPP (Tumaini “hope” AIDS Prevention Program) is a holistic care project that seeks solidarity with those infected and affected with HIV and AIDS.  It provides Training, Home Based Care, Income Generating Projects, Education, and Social Support for a hopeful life which encompasses the entire community.
