Haiti :: HIV/AIDS Prevention



REGION: Mesoamerica

THE NEED: $20,000.00

About the project

HIV/AIDS continues to spread across Haiti, and the church is taking on the role of not only educating and protecting young people in churches, but also educating and protecting those in local communities as well. The latest statistics show that approximately 50 percent of unmarried youth and young adults who attend church in Haiti are sexually active, and the numbers of those outside of the church are even higher.

In an effort to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS among young adults in Haiti, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM) and Nazarene Youth International (NYI) aim to partner together to introduce an education and prevention program to youth and young adults throughout Haiti. Youth leaders will be trained to teach other youth in the realities of HIV/AIDS. If 800 local leaders from 400 Nazarene churches are trained, we can teach at least 12,000 youth.

Your gift will provide curriculum and training for the youth leaders who will become trainers and teachers. For $25 you can help train 1 person who will then teach many more about the realities of HIV/AIDS.
