Through workshops of sensitization and reflection, at date, 430 young people from educational institutions and other community-based organizations in the city of Medellin became aware on responsible sexuality.
Learning in training workshops
Each young person participates in two meetings to learn about what is HIV and its routes of infection, in order to use effective methods to prevent transmission
1.a Sensitization workshop: It is a space for reflection and awareness about responsible sexuality
1.b Documental: CINEMA- FORUM allow the analysis and reflection on risk behaviors and routes of HIV infection
2. Discussion: It is a space to talk and resolve questions about HIV, focused on responsibility.
During this training process, young people are invited to learn more about this topic and to visit our blog on HIV / AIDS
In this web site they might find information published by a group of medical experts, who frequently summarize important topics of interest on HIV / AIDS.
The educative institutions with our interventions are IE Luis Carlos Galán Sarmiento, Colegio Campestre La Colina, IE Alfredo Cock Arango. Additionality, this campaign is extended to community-based organizations that have as mission to streghten the training process of young people by giving information on sexual responsibility. As a consequence, a group of 20 young people from the Corporación Picacho con Futuro, attended the meetings to learn about HIV and the ways to protect and prevent infection.
Your generous donation have contributed implementing this Project. It includes the following goals:
The Art Exhibition
The Media Campaign
The Educational Workshops
First, we are prioritizing educational institutions to carry out the preventive workshops, based on the criteria of risk and vulnerability. In addition we prioritized those institutions that had an ongoing sexual education project in which our prevention workshop could be integrated. The workshops will start on March 2016.
We want to thank to all our benefactors of Global Giving that have made the project “1800 young in Medellín, sensitized to HIV: a hope” a reality.
So far we have focused on the planning of the exhibition, which will allow us to establish a dialogue with the community around the HIV/AIDS subject, seeking to fulfill our educational and awareness-raising purposes. We are very pleased with this good start and the alliances that we have made. Following, the most relevant ones are described:
Thanks to your support we are making this dream come true!!!
