While Malawi’s rates of new HIV infections have drastically reduced in recent years, young girls and other vulnerable populations continue to bear the burden of the epidemic. In schools, we work with students and teachers to lead discussions on gender-based violence, reproductive health, and prevention of HIV. Students are made aware of how sexual violence, STIs and HIV can be prevented and are encouraged to practice safe practices. Students are also presented with opportunities to develop their life skills and change the stigma around HIV. We also work with parents and caregivers to help them recognize risky behavior and effectively communicate with their children.Support Our Mission
