TOMS is proud to partner with Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) and support its programs that educate and empower youth to keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS.
Charlize Theron founded CTAOP in 2007 in an effort to support African youth in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Although the geographic scope of CTAOP is Sub-Saharan Africa, the primary area of focus is Charlize’s home country of South Africa.
Of the 1.8 million adolescents living with HIV, about 1.4 million (80%) live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
