The initiative taps into excitement around the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup by using soccer as the entry point for an evidence based strategy that draws on best practice for HIV prevention, youth communication and sports for development.
AYM and its partners will be conducting community based outreach programs for youth including educational and free HIV Testing & Counseling services. To this effect, Africa Youth Ministries plans to recruit over 500 VCT Volunteer Counselors. Besides, during this period AYM will also engage the youth on drug abuse, teen pregnancy and as well on economic development through setting up of income generating projects. this effort aims to:

  • Help accelerate reductions in the rate of HIV infection among young Ugandans
  • Re-engage young people across Uganda in the fight against HIV/AIDS
  • Help boost leadership on drug abuse prevention especially in West Nile.

Peace Through Sport Outreaches FIFA 2010 World Cup

In Northern Uganda, a sub region that was devastated by a 21 years civil armed conflict between the LRA rebels and the government of Uganda between 1986-2006. The 2010 Soccer World Cup presents an ideal opportunity to engage sport as a platform to teach necessary peace building skills with emphasis on: dialogue, tolerance, forgiveness, reconciliation, non violence, respecting and accepting differences, justice & equality, respecting rules, self control, communication skills, team spirit, integrity, and all important ingredients for dialogue and peace. Nelson Mandela wisely said: “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.

Combining soccer with community based programmes and intensive media outreach will give a welcome boost to ongoing HIV prevention work on the continent and will be particularly powerful in the months building up to the first World Cup to be hosted in Africa.”
