new Day Camp increases HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention
the summer of 2002, we started a new Day Camp program
to train both students and teachers in basic HIV information,
transmission and prevention. Summer Day Camps were
carried out in three Arusha area schools and were
three weeks in length. The goal of these day camps
was to provide a framework for students to learn about
relationships, sexuality, and HIV/AIDS in a creative,
and, ultimately, sustainable manner.
