Crossing hurdles with Encouragement

Velan (name changed) is a HIV positive adolescent child, who attends the adolescent support group. He is living with his aunt, his parents both died to AIDS when he was very young.

The medication is affecting his memory and finds it difficult to cope up with the stress involved in his studies. In addition; his aunt is not able to give the best care and hence his immunity is affected and hence absents himself very often from school. His status is not known to his teachers and hence they raise many complaints about his school performance.

But in the midst of all these challenges, he is regular in attending the support group meeting as he feels supported and cared, especially in releasing all the negative feeling he had developed in his school.

Though academically he has not been able to achieve to the expected level of his school teachers ,the encouraging words of his friends  has helped him to identify a way in leasing his negative feelings . He once expressed in a group meeting of what he felt like; that “I knew how to draw, but only when my friends appreciate, I admire my art
