About this Campaign

Covid has ravaged the world without sparing Uganda. Many children and youths on ARVs haven't accessed hospital care and many more youths haven't got access to family planning and HIV/AIDS testing services. In 2010 alone 1,400,000 people were living with HIV. HIV incidence per 1000 uninfected —the number of new HIV infections among the uninfected population over one year—among all people of all ages was 1.4. HIV prevalence—the percentage of people living with HIV—among adults (15–49 years) was 5.7 %.( UNAIDS) Between January and May-1500 youths have acquired HIV/AIDS in one region of Uganda. HIV/AIDS still remains a silent killer even amidst Covid 19 pandemic

Our Project is meant to educate the youths in rural areas about HIV/AIDS, Covid19 virus and mental health prevention, and modes of safeguarding one's self at the family and household level.

Our mode of education will be online and offline using puppetry shows and animation which are easy to pass on messages to with a wide appeal and humorous/light entertainment-The methodology is called "edutainment"
