2005 Summer Tour
AIDS Awareness Fair
asks students to
"Be A Hero"

 

Bridges to the World

Betsy Elfers did an incredible job of organizing an AIDS Awareness  Fair sponsored by the GDCU. We were honored that her efforts on the fair, as well as her work in the Loskop area in general, have elicited such respect that even the Chief of the Zulu Tribe attended the event.

This fair, organized by Microfinance for Youth staff and volunteers, was to educate and build awareness about AIDS.

Speakers talked openly (a rarity in rural South Africa) about how to get AIDS, how to prevent getting AIDS, and how and why to get tested and know you status.

This fair hosted a Zulu dancing competition, including offering a prize sheep, to draw community participation.

Local dignitaries spoke, and our MFY teacher, General Nzuza took the AIDs test publicly to demonstrate how this process was done and to de-stigmatize this process. Local MFY youth sold snacks to those in the stands.

Zulu dance competitors await their chance to win the contest and the sheep.

A local farmer was very gracious to donate the sheep.
