Project Strategies

The Project will address issues that affect young people and HIV/AIDS orphaned children for example lack of adequate information about HIV/AIDs. STDs, Sex and Sexuality. Use of contraceptives etc and how to prevent the rate of HIV infection that is on the increase in rural areas.

The Project will directly involve the orphans, their families, caregivers and guardians, the youth in planning and implementation of the process. It will also focus on several issues that aim at building capacity of community workers who in turn will train community volunteers and peer counselors to give them skills in reproductive health issues and the considerable potentials of young people. As a result, they will be able to discuss sexual health matters, behavior change, risk reduction and care for the HIV/AIDs orphans and the people living with HIV in general.

The project is expected to train and educate, build capacity of community workers, volunteers, young mothers, nurses, First Aiders who will provide and share health knowledge and information to others in the rural areas in the project area.
