The real life and virtual mission of Community HIV/AIDS Resource Exchange (CHARE Project) is to provide capacity building, technical assistance, training, and social media marketing to enhance linkage and delivery of HIV/AIDS prevention, education and related services. The Kitely-based component of CHARE Project known as CHARE Village was established to increase the usability and application of OpenSim technology by HIV prevention providers, AIDS service organizations and other public health providers regardless of physical location. As with the real life CHARE Project, the objectives of the virtual-based program are to educate service providers as well as consumers; to enhance the delivery of HIV/AIDS services and resources; to expand the organization's outreach; to establish collaborative partnerships; to earn global recognition for the organization's programs; and to reduce HIV/AIDS stigma recognizing AIDS as a chronic disease; not a death threat.
