331 students graduate from HIV/AIDS Day Camp
A total of 331 students from four secondary schools in Arusha and Arumeru in Tanzania just graduated from Global Services Corps’ three week summer Day Camp on HIV/AIDS and vocational studies. All received certificates.

The Arusha Times reported the news in a long story in their July 8-14 issue.

GSC volunteers worked collaboratively with local teachers, peer educators, and translators to teach the course. Each summer, GSC’s Tanzania HIV/AIDS Prevention volunteers help lead the HIV/AIDS Day Camp.

HIV/AIDS is rampant among the African youth of 15 to 24 years of age. By educating these young people on the risks of contracting HIV/AIDS and ways to prevent getting it, GSC volunteers aim to reduce the spread of the disease and its devastating consequences. The camps are designed to be an interactive way for students to learn about HIV/AIDS, prevention, relationships and sexuality in a fun, creative, and ultimately sustainable manner.

The volunteers also introduced the students to vocational studies, so as to enable them to be self-reliant after leaving school.

The guest of honour at the graduation ceremony, Peter A. K. Njambi, the Chief Zonal Inspector of Schools, North-western zone, asked the students to share their newly acquired knowledge with their colleagues, friends and families. Njambi insisted that education is the best weapon in the fight against the ravaging disease - how to avoid and control its spread. He advised the students to establish clubs in their respective schools for the purpose of disseminating knowledge.

The camp is supervised by the day camp Director, Tara Bukow, in collaboration with camp Coordinator, Hannah Reid.
