Organization Description:
Shalom International is a faith based civil society organisation founded in September 2002, but incorporated by the government of Senegal in March 2004. Touched by the horrible experiences of human rights violations in post war Casamance region of Senegal, the ravaging impact of HIV/AIDS, a group of concerned individuals came together to establish this organization with the following aims and objectives:

- To reduce women's vulnerability to TB /HIV and promote the human rights of women and children.
- Educate, inform, and raise awareness of people living in post conflict zones on the AIDS epidemic and its consequences.
- Promote safe and responsible behaviour towards sexually transmitted infections in general and TB/HIV in particular.
- Initiate control programs for TB/HIV among migrant youths and women taking into account the socio-cultural realities.
- Collaborate with the National Committee for the Fight against AIDS, existing associations, women's organizations and institutions, national and international partners for a better control of HIV infection.
- Mitigate the impact of disasters in post conflict through the provision of income generating activities, vocational training and peace building.
