Are you tired of learning the same things about HIV/AIDS at school every year?
I went to visit the AIDS and TB center and i had the opportunity to hear their stories. It was heart breaking to see them suffer and it shocked me that none of them knew about the disease or they didn't have enough knowledge about it.
I want to see kids have fun while learning about the disease. Lets stop highlighting the basics and get into detail about this core need in South Africa. Lets focus on one topic a year, e.g Grade 8+9( Pregnant women with HIV/AIDS.), Grade 10 ( Blood transfusions.), Grade 11 ( Drugs and how they link.) and Grade 12 ( Unsafe Sex.)! We need to educate the kids so that we can see a change. It starts with a younger generation.
Children like myself are tired of the same thing every year, help me spice things up for you and get more information taught to you, get you to be active about the disease like playing games and getting people to come and tell you their stories. We need to change our peers negative attitudes and we must stop being ignorant. Help me to help you. One small step at a time
