Another productive and exciting day!
Today we walked through the Imbaseini Village and, with the help of our friendly translators Herman and Peter, informed people about our upcoming HIV/AIDS workshops. Lots of people took the time to read our poster and listen, so hopefully there’s a big turnout tomorrow! Our main stop seemed to be in a market not too far outside of the UAACC. There was so much activity: children playing, women selling all sorts of fruits and vegetables and meats, men talking and laughing together. It had a real community feel to it which was really refreshing.
Next week, we are holding a woman’s day where we talk about HIV/AIDS topics that might be more important to women like how to have a safe pregnancy even if your HIV positive and stigmas associated with HIV/AIDS. Many of the women seemed to be interested in attending that workshop so it might be something we want to continue doing or even extend over a couple of days next time.
I’m a little nervous for our first workshop but I have a good feeling about it!
