Youth HIV and AIDS Education and Discipleship

Teenagers make up a great deal of the population in the churches of Eastern Burkina Faso. The generational gap that exists between the parents and youth is great and has resulted in a lack of mentorship. Many have received little information about HIV and AIDS so teaching is a necessity to encourage focused efforts toward prevention. This program provides for training in Fada N’ Gourma in the following areas: HIV and AIDS, discrimination, becoming agents of change, marriage and mentorship. Trainers from Mahadaga, Logobou, Boagidigou, Diapaga, Botou and Gayeri all travel to Fada N’Gourma for classes. At the end of each workshop, participants are given the resources to train in their own communities.
