So I had to share this with you,am sure you will love what HAVEN ANTI AIDS FOUNDATION  is doing in this project,

Education Plus Project is a youthful project that Inspires, Educates, Empowers and Exhibits young people’s talents thereby adding more knowledge besides school syllabuses to students in schools and out of school youth. They aim at Teaching, Training and Testing; thereby promoting their new HIV/AIDS Prevention strategies, that is, Abstinence, Behavior change, Career guidance to students in schools and Abstinence, Be faithful and correct use of Condoms in communities.

Their Mission
They focus on the promotion of HIV/AIDS prevention, awareness and sensitization in schools and communities involving and empowering youth through the use of their talents to pass on the message of Abstinence, Behavior change and Career guidance with the aim to change youth’s attitude and behaviors to prevent the new HIV infections
To coordinate, sensitize and mobilize joint activities and involvement of young people in the response to HIV/AIDS through the provision of HIV/AIDS information thereby translating it into behavior change.

Their Activities
The project is implemented through the following activities;
•Info-tainment for HIV/AIDS prevention (Educative shows)
•Training and capacity building (Training workshops)
•Community HIV/AIDS Prevention drives
•Talking environment
•Formation of youth clubs
•Counseling and guidance
•Conferences and Workshops
•Advocacy and lobbying
•HIV Testing
•Nurturing talents
•Youth platforms to raise their issues on health and employment
•Father-Daughter Dance

So if you can offer any help they lack the following

•Resources like P.A System, cameras, projector, etc
•Funding for allowances and facilitation
•Volunteers with different skills
•Qualifies youth counselors
•Lack of published materials with HIV/AIDS messages/information for the youth
•Ready HIV testing experts during our outreaches
•Costumes for the performances, that is, skits, silent theater, dances, etc

They mostly need;
•Stakeholder participation
•More skilled volunteers
•Sub-grants from different organization
•Signing partnerships with different organizations

Here are some of the Pics.
