AIDS-Free Generation Photo Contest - First Place - Reducing/Eliminating Stigma and Discrimination
Fatima’s Gift by Peace Corps Volunteer Molly Green (Morocco, 2011–2013)
A student in Morocco holds some of the ribbons that were distributed during a local music festival. Volunteers, a Moroccan HIV/AIDS organization, and local high school students conducted outreach and HIV testing.
Peace Corps Volunteers work with PEPFAR (the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) around the world to bring about the reality of an AIDS-Free Generation. Check out this infographic to learn more about PEPFAR
We are thrilled to announce that Alicia Keys will be selecting the winners of our AIDS-Free Generation Photo Contest! As co-founder and global ambassador for Keep a Child Alive, Keys is dedicated to improving the lives of children and their families living with AIDS. Her passion combined with her artistic vision will help us select the winning photos that express the spirit of the Peace Corps Volunteers. Their work around the world is truly an inspiration to us all.

Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, June 27 to get a glimpse at what it’s like for Peace Corps Volunteers as they adapt to overseas cultures that can be less than tolerant of their sexual identities.
(HT to the Washington Blade for the awesome photos of RPCVs marching in the DC Pride Parade!)
