I took this photo during an HIV/AIDS awareness camp held in Ukraine. The three students seen here, from the 8th form, created the poster as a project to show what they learned. The poster says "We Stop AIDS Together" in Ukrainian. - Peace Corps Education Volunteer Kathryn Trescott
I took this photo of Annette and Christy giving a condom demonstration during a Coaching for Hope workshop in Burkina Faso. 10 Volunteers brought 2 counterparts each to this July 2011 training to learn how to incorporate soccer drills into HIV/AIDS awareness education modules. - Peace Corps Health Volunteer Hayley Droppert
This photo was taken on August 2, 2009 with one of the several Window of Hope groups that I worked with in Namibia. Window of Hope is a UNICEF driven educational program made up of lifeskills and HIV/AIDS education workshops. We met twice a week for several hours to discuss things that many young students encounter throughout the world including self-esteem issues, gender issues, pregnancy and HIV/AIDS education. It was a safe-haven for students who could not speak openly due to traditional stigmas on feelings, and general fears or questions children have growing up in a rural hostel school. This group has just finished the program! - Peace Corps Education Volunteer Melissa Becci

The children in my village have taken me in at their big sister, calling me “kakak” rather than my actual name. It’s heart-warming. They love to take me to the sugarcane fields that surround our village. They run with knifes, and it makes me nervous, but it’s the norm here. Children run free here. I love this photograph because I actually let Sylvie, a 9-year old with very sticky fingers from the sugarcane juices, use my Canon SLR to take this. Whenever she sees this photo, she proudly says “aku aku” or “mine mine”.

Our host brothers and some other local boys excited to get their photo taken. After the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Shakira’s Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) was hugely popular song in South Africa.
