THE WAY FORWARD
In June 2001, the UN General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS stated as one of their global priorities, “by 2005, to ensure that at least 90% of young people aged 15-24 have access to information, education and services necessary to develop the life skills needed to reduce their vulnerability to HIV, and 95% by 2010”
Kicking AIDS Out! represents an innovative approach towards reaching this goal. The challenge lies in proving that it is different and that it does make an impact on the lives of young people. This will be a focus for the Kicking AIDS Out of Uganda! For Africa Youth Ministries Uganda, alongside with the ongoing implementation of the existing programs.
Through sport young people are inspired and driven not only to fight AIDS, and not only to support those that are infected and affected by the pandemic, but to effect real transformation through empowering themselves and those around them.
Empower Youth to Abstain from Sex!
Give them the power:
- To make wise choices to remain uninfected
- To escape HIV/AIDS
- To influence the future generations – role models
- To TEST True Love
