Reducing stigma among people living with HIV/AIDS
Despite the progress made in the treatment of AIDS, and global attention moving on from AIDS to other diseases, people who are living with the virus often remain marginalised or forgotten in their own families and communities. This project will build on a previous successful workshop to explore the issue of stigmatisation with a further 60 people living with AIDS in the Coastal Region of Kenya, thus changing their relationships with their families and communities project reportread updates from the field
Tackling "breast ironing" in Loum, Cameroon
Estelle (12) is happy, cared for by a mother who has fought against the mutilation of her daughter's breasts. She is one of the lucky ones. 1 in 4 girls in Cameroon are affected by breast ironing, a form of female mutilation inflicted on young girls, often by older female relatives. They apply hot stones to the girls' breasts to reduce their sexual activity. This project will campaign to raise awareness, educate girls and their families and offer psychological support to those already affected. project reportread updates from the field
Computers for youth clubs in Benin
In many countries access to a computer and to the internet are taken for granted and are used extensively by young people both to further their education, but also to communicate and network with each other. Young people in Benin do not enjoy such access. This project will supply computers to youth clubs in eight municipalities in Benin, together with training and support to ensure the computers' proper use and maintenance. It is envisaged up to 15,000 people will benefit. project reportread updates from the field
