About Beza Posterity Development Organization Organization History:
BPDO was established in the year 2000 as an anti HIV/AIDS club and is now a non-profit making, non-governmental indigenous humanitarian organization dedicated to promoting the health and socio-economic wellbeing of the community. Its establishment was initiated by a group of enthusiastic youngsters whom their hearts were touched by the HIV epidemic which was a prime cause to the death of countless number of youth and children.
During that time, discussing about HIV/AIDS was considered as taboo, whereas undergoing HIV testing was a big deal like someone in between life and death. Likewise, HIV positive people were highly discriminated and stigmatized from any social and cultural engagements that fueled their physical death and exacerbate psychological destructions which resulted in myriad loses of life and resources in the region. Having cognizant of this critical challenge in the operational area, a group of committed young students has initiated the establishment of Beza Youth Anti HIV/AIDS and Reproductive Health Club. The word “Beza” in Amharic is equally translated in English as “being sacrificed to redeem someone” in which these youngsters have determined to confront the problem and save their people. Thus, Beza has been chosen to be the name of the club that would represent the commitment of the founding members and its constituency since its inception. In doing so BPDO grown up in to a broader association and finally became a registered local implementing partner.
