[edit] Title

Tolon Girls HIV/AIDS & Leadership Camp

[edit] Purpose and Approach

This project “Girls Leadership Camp (GLC)” is designed to empower and teach young and underprivileged girls about HIV/AIDS. The camp will consist of fifty Form 1 and 2 girls, from the seven Junior High Schools, who have shown outstanding merit and creativity. In addition, five Senior High School girls will lead the younger girls in the camp activities for the duration of the camp. The camp is organized in collaboration with women working in the Tolon/Kumbungu District, including the Girl Child Education Officer, the School Health Education Program Coordinating Director, the Deputy Director of Finance and the Red Cross Coach.

During each day of the camp, the girls will learn more about HIV/AIDS, its causes, effects and dangers, as well as prevention methods, specifically abstinence, being faithful, and determining you and your partner's status. The camp activities will include interactive and creative lessons such as Lions and Elephants, Xs and Os, High Risk or Low Risk, Narrow Bridges and the Journey of Hope. The workshop will provide critical information on transmission and prevention methods including abstinence, being faithful, hygiene, and determining you and your partner's status. A Person Living With HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) will be invited to share his experiences with the students as to reduce stigma and promote the acceptance of PLWHA. They will also hear inspirational quotes, traditional proverbs and participate in self-esteem, leadership, confidence and assertiveness boosting games.The trained Senior High School girls will create a more relaxed setting for the JHS campers to feel comfortable, asking questions and engaging in open discussions about HIV/AIDS. And on the last day of the camp, the students will stage a drama performance, and all community members will be encouraged to come and watch.
