Map of HIV & AIDS TRAINING St John's ambulance is an NGO founded for humanitarian assistance I joined the volunteers from st, John ambulance in educating youths from Lurambi constituency about Hiv/ aids. This was done in schools i e. primary and secondary schools. The pupils were divided according to the age groups and classes they were in. I also did not take chances with teachers and non-teaching staff from those schools. The schools we visited were as follows; Nabongo primary, Ikonyero and chebuyusi. Nanganda secondary, Matende secondary and Malara boys high school. This education benefited the youths a lot, they learned more than they were to learn and this improved the number of those youths knowing how to protect themselves from Hiv & aids. Read more.
