Educating Through Anti AIDS Clubs

YOUR students at Nyaka and Kutamba Primary Schools have become champions in the fight against HIV/AIDS in rural Uganda!  Both schools have student groups called the Anti AIDS Club, which work diligently to educate schools and communities about the disease.  The clubs sensitize students in schools, church congregations, as well as the whole community, about HIV/AIDS.  The students do community education and outreach through radio programs, concerts, and plays using songs, drama, poems and dance with HIV/AIDS messages.    

The Anti AIDS Clubs also create awareness about the plight of orphans, children’s rights, family planning, HIV/AIDS prevention, disproving stigmas, hygiene, sanitation and other issues affecting the community.  As a result, the program staff and nurses who make home visits have begun to see positive and informed changes in behavior – especially in the homes of people who have seen or heard the Anti-AIDS Club perform. 

The Nyaka Primary School Anti AIDS Club was recently on a radio program on the Kanungu Broadcasting station which had about 20,000 people listening in.  The Nyaka club also had a live performance which reached about 800 people including students from two schools, teachers and community members.  Unfortunately, the Kutamba Anti AIDS Club has not carried out any activities lately because their van is in poor condition and can’t be driven very far, but they are still busy practicing. 

YOUR generous support has showed these children the importance of giving back through education.  Thank YOU for inspiring your students!

MORE BIG NEWS- August 2, 2016 marked the 15th anniversary of The Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project.  

Thank YOU for making this milestone possible!  YOU have made Nyaka 15 years strong!
