Behaviour Change

My name is Kibugut Erick. I am 20 years old. I finished my fourth form last year and i am about to join the university. a week after i completed my fourm form i was introduced to acertain project on behaviour change sponsored by CBO named pillar project after being introduced by a friend. During the course which took about a month we were taught more about behaviour change as youth. We also lloked at HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and on that topic we learnt alot concerning how to protect ourselves from such diseases. we were also taught how to treat those that are infected and also ways of taking their care. We learnt more about our health and also some aspects of coomunication as a step towards behaviour change. At the end of the training , i can say that we really learnt alot as youths and many of our lives were transformed by the initiative
