There was drama in the lower classroom; sewing in the workshop; hair styling on the verandah and videos in the meeting room! Young deaf women played board games to learn about their strengths and then broke into discussion groups to create an answer for an orphan worried about her HIV+ uncle living in her home. Role plays gave the girls ideas of how to refuse to go with Sugar Daddys and art activities allowed them to demonstrate their creative abilities and learn new ideas about themselves.
We were delighted to welcome parents and representatives from our funding partners Johnson & Johnson to our Graduation event.
The young women are enjoying themselves, learning a lot and taking on business ideas. They are all understanding more about the risks and prevention of HIV. The biggest complaint we have heard is from the boys! “When is it our turn?”
