VCT-Day-a-Palooza or Knowledge is Power

Posted in Peace Corps Adventures by Joy on July 2, 2013

This weekend I joined 6 other PCVs in my district for a voluntary HIV/AIDS testing & counseling event that included a football (soccer) tournament for both men & women. Joe, the PCV who organized, Started a women’s football league (basically unheard of here) & pulled the various organizations involved together to create an awesome day. 200 people got tested & now know their status, which is an amazing contribution to the battle against this wide-spread disease in this country. So cool.

    Since PEPFAR provides part of the funding for PC Zambia, we’re all required to do some HIV/AIDS work. Going out this weekend gave me good ideas to consider for making an impact in my community during my service. Anyone who has more to offer, please share!

    I also connected with grassrootsoccer.org today, which incorporates HIV/AIDS lessons into soccer-themed youth activities. Super pumped to work with them.
