The youth club football  teams at tournaments are taught about reproductive health and HIV/AIDS awareness.

The participation of the community is an  essential aspect in implementing the projects and, more generally, in providing  basic health care. The key actors are people from the community. Through this  they are empowered, gaining greater self-reliance and more active  responsibilities additionally improving their own health. They are therefore  involved in all stages of the Projects; from initial planning through to the  evaluation.

 “Governmental and nongovernmental organizations at all levels could do much more to help  people especially in village youth, change their behavior to avoid HIV and AIDS”
