Overview of the Project
Every years AIDS claims the lives of thousands of Kenyan children and adults. It is estimated that about 900,000 Kenyans are infected with HIV/AIDS and that number is expanding rapidly. Real grassroots efforts are needed to prevent human disaster in this millennium. In collaboration with local groups, Global Crossroad has established HIV/AIDS projects seeking to foster awareness among the local communities.
Ideally, volunteers in this project will be trained together with the local experts for a period of one week. For the following weeks, volunteers and local experts will together engage in training, education and demonstration activities to increase HIV/AIDS awareness in local Kenyan communities. This project is very challenging and participants should be prepared to learn and train others as this project goes forward.
