WP_20141129_162

We had such a wonderful Graduation Ceremony with the Peer Educators on the 29th of November 2014. It has been indeed a long year which was full of challenges on the Peer Education program, but we are so grateful for any support we have received that enabled us to have such a wonderful Ceremony.

Such events are so very important in terms of encouraging the Peer Educators for the job well-done for this year, it has not been easy, but they persevered through this whole year. And it is a good thing that we appreciate them for being the ones who bring that positive change to other young people out there, young people of the Masoyi community in particular.

World AIDS Day

2014 World AIDS Day

December 1st is World AIDS Day and if you only do one thing on this day, put on a red ribbon. Pin it to your jacket, your backpack or even your dog’s collar. The red ribbon is the international symbol of HIV and AIDS awareness.

World AIDS Day is an opportunity for you to learn the facts about HIV and put your knowledge into action. If you understand how HIV is transmitted, how it can be prevented, and the reality of living with HIV today, you can use this knowledge to take care of your own health and the health of others, and ensure you treat everyone living with HIV fairly, and with respect and understanding without discriminating those who are living with the HIV virus.

We are so happy about the efforts our government is putting in terms of fighting this disease, of which one of those ways is of course that of providing ARV’s. Anti-retroviral therapy (ARVs) means that people living with HIV can expect to live long and healthy lives provided they receive adequate medication, nutrition and support and adhere to their treatment.

We believe that as we celebrate this day today; World Aids Day, it will of course give the opportunity to increase awareness and an easy access of treatment along with various preventive measures.

On the 1st of December 2014, Masoyi Home Based Care Project joined the millions of people all around the world on observing and celebrating this day. We are of course not celebrating because people are sick out there, but celebrating that our Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, and Brothers living positive (Living with the HIV virus) are able to live longer with such a disease. And able to put courage and persevere through all the challenges they are facing as they are living with such a pandemic disease.
