education unites communities
In Sub-Saharan Africa, 24.7 million people are living with HIV – it is the most serious HIV AIDs pandemic in the world. In Tanzania, about 1.4 million have AIDs and the country is working hard to combat the disease. AE has joined that fight.
African Enterprise provided scripture-based training to teachers, parents and students in Magu district, Tanzania, through an education and awareness campaign that reached thousands of young people in 58 schools.
“Following the AE training, I discovered that the way of God is based on truth and understanding and not on myths or rumors”
One of those schools was Manala Primary, where Yohana, a grade six student went to school. “Before training I had beliefs in traditional myths about HIV and AIDS,” he said. Like many of his friends and family, he followed the social stigma associated with HIV, where anyone with HIV is ostracized by their own community.
“Following the AE training, I discovered that the way of God is based on truth and understanding and not on myths or rumors,” said Yohana. “I’m now comfortable talking to my parents when discussing changes in my body and talking about HIV and AIDS. I am confident that I am special and unique and that God loves me and he wants me to live a life of purity.”
Yohana became a Christian through the campaign.
