Schools Project.
 

We are poised to increase and make more effective outreach of our empowerment programmes by working with schools where we know young people of the target age congregate in larger numbers and scale. By and large this programme focuses on the following aspects:
 
  • Providing psychosocial support (PSS) to learners, educators, and the community. We are supported by the SADC framework on minimum package of services and PSS which places great emphasis on the mainstreaming of Psychosocial Support in all structures that provide services to children and young people.
  • Focusing on clear health goals – the prevention of HIV and AIDS.
  • Focusing narrowly on specific behaviours leading to these health goals (e.g. abstaining from sex or using condoms and other contraceptives).
  • Addresssing multiple psychosocial risks and protective factors affecting sexual behaviours (e.g. knowledge, perceived risks, valuers, attitudes, perceived norms and self efficacy).

 

Mobile Health Unit Project.
 
Here, our goal is to increase support in primary health care information and basic treatment and services to young people at schools and in communities.

This component provides comprehensive information to young people to promote peer to peer learning and exchange of information, in areas of HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT).
 

As such we promote the positive impact, knowledge and attitudes towards healthy matters which include, but are not limited to, HIV and AIDS, screening of malaria and TB, medical check-ups for school going youth in particular and out of school youth and girls, sexual behaviours.
