Challenge

Malawi has one of the highest national HIV prevalence rates in the world. Act4Africa enables communities to develop their capacity for delivery of a HIV/AIDS Education Project through a network of trained volunteers. Bernard is a Malawian who has been working in Lilongwe, Malawi, for the last 12 months. To date he's helped train 60 trainers who will reach over 20,000 Malawians in their own communities. Teaching Malawians how to stay safe, as well as reducing the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS.

Solution

Act4Africa's innovative HIV/AIDS Education Programme is facilitated through performance arts, sports and workshops in schools and communities. The Programme challenges cultural norms, encourages behavioural change and reduces the stigma of HIV/AIDS.

Long-Term Impact

Act4Africa's work encourages independence and challenges cultural behaviour, helping to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS through increased knowledge. Act4Africa also provide love and comfort to those affected by HIV/AIDS.
