The study is a case study carried out in Makuyni Sub County in monduli district of north Tanzania between December 2009 and January 2010, using PRA tools, interviews and questionnaires as well as literature review to collect information necessary for the study The study findings indicate that, effects of HIV/ AIDS are spreading within the community and community has little knowledge about it. The government and nongovernmental organization were providing education about the causes and the effects but the great challenge is the culture of the Maasai community and illiteracy among the entire community. The few educated are used to educate others because it becomes easy for them to accept the education through their fellow tnl>e mate than other people from outside their community.

The measures should include education about the causes of HIV/ AIDS and the effect, to stop their culture which promotes spread of the disease and use the culture which is friendly to the human life.
