The spread of HIV/AIDS seem to be linked to poverty and ignorance. poverty has driven children and youths from the normal mainstream of life into lives prostitution,drugs ,violence and sexual abuse.We have experienced a new trend here in Guyana where even boys are now sexually abused .While there are gropps supporting affected persons ,education and awareness are lacking. The Christian Development Foundation has formulated a two -year programme to educate youths and children about HIV/AIDS. This programme wilL target both primary and secondary schools involving both students , teachers and parents.The hope is to get them involved in activities ,past times ,education programs and sports to promote safe lifestyles. We cannot continue to pretend while the next generation are dying before our eyes. The project cost for two years are as follows:US$ 8,000 for two years. Suport also in the form of LARGE HIV/POSTERS ,White tea shirts, caps will help towards the success of this project. We sincerely covit the prayers ,material and finalcial support of our readers of this appeal.
