About This TripThis is an 9 Day / 8 Night mission trip to India.

India is facing an accelerating threat from HIV, with more people infected with HIV than any other country in the world. The number of children in India orphaned by AIDS is approaching two million, according to UN estimates. The impacts of the AIDS crisis have not begun to emerge fully in India, and AIDS-related orphaning is not yet occurring at a large scale. Yet, India has the largest number of AIDS orphans of any country in the world. This number is expected to more than double in five years, and the proportion of orphaned children will remain exceptionally high until 2020 or 2030.
