After identifying a niche that has to be filled, pillar project, a CBO (community based organization) saw the need to educate the youth about their life and there future life in particular. My home area had privileged of hosting this event which was unveiled as BCC (Behavior change and communication) study course. Surprisingly many youth enrolled for the same. The initiative sw them being aught matters to do with their body, health wise. HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases, their effects and how one can a point. Carrying out good morals was also an issue.At the end of the whole traing that lasted 4 weeks, the youths had a reason to smile. They had been enlightened and thus at least hope for the future had been restored.
