NAKURU, Kenya, Feb. 4 (Xinhua) -- Although Mary Atieno is positive with HIV Authentic Blue Jackets Hoodie , her efforts to raise an income and live a better life have not been deterred.
Atieno lives in Kaptembwa estate in Nakuru, about 168km northwest of Nairobi. She is the chairperson of Baraka Upendo Women's Group which comprises 20 members also infected with the disease.

"Even with the disease (HIV), I am a strong woman, and I use my energy to make money rather than wait for help from someone else," says Atieno.
With the profits she makes, Atieno says she is able to afford her rent and balanced food while maintaining high hopes for a good life and strength.
She is not alone in eking out a living from the artifacts. Members of the group which she chairs are equally active and aggressive in the venture.
Formation of the Baraka Upendo Women's Group in 2006 was bound with giving each other moral support in the midst of a society that stigmatized them. But there was a great need for finances to support their families following the death of their husbands.
"And so we had a discussion on different ways of empowering ourselves financially. We finally settled on making the artifacts from the recyclable materials as it was cost efficient for us Adidas Blue Jackets Jerseys ," she explains.
Mary Anyango, another member of the group, says being able to generate an income to sustain themselves and their families draws them satisfaction incomparable to pitying themselves.

Even as the surrounding community exudes a biased behavior towards them, the women say they have resorted to remaining focused and hopeful while they strive to share their experiences with other infected women.
"We go out to the estates and churches to talk to women. It is encouraging to share in their suffering as members of the society still tend to exclude those living with HIVAids Nick Foligno Blue Jackets Jersey ," says Atieno.
Their vision is to reach out to as many women and youth as possible to educate them on how to live positively and avoid infecting others in the community.
