A project that i don’t work on directly, but really is quite a great one is the Staying Alive Foundation. The Foundation’s mandate is to empower young people on the frontline of the epidemic by providing them with grants to use to educate their peers or create environments that challenge stigma and discrimination of people already infected with HIV. We look at it like a domino or pyramid effect – you educate one to educate one more, to educate another and so on and so on.
Here is a video that highlights some of the work the foundation has supported. Enjoy – let me know what you think of these videos too.

Hi,

welcome to my blog! i’m working on some really exciting projects that i definitely want to share with the world. but i also want to share some of my opinions of what’s going on in the HIV/AIDS world, as a young African woman who has lost a best friend, an uncle, and two brothers to HIV/AIDS i do have an opinion that’s not always politically correct to voice out.

i am very passionate about my work and indeed this issue, so i apologise now if i get a bit too opinionated – and i’ll try not to offend anyone. remember these are just my opinions, and unlike Kanye West, i don’t think i’m God and i can keep my opinions to the correct forum to air them – i.e. my blog.

and for any academics or HIV/AIDS professionals, i’m not an expert on this issue – i might fancy myself an expert on how to communicate them to young people – but i’m not an expert on the issues nor epidemiology.
