Finally a meeting!
Late last year I organized and put on a huge youth camp focusing on HIVaids. I think it was a great success. For the cherry on top a group of kids who attended the camp decided to form their own health promoter group. They were super motivated after the event, went out and recruited members and formed their own group of health educators, 30 in fact. We have been coordinating schedules and trying to work around the coffee picking season, the school schedule, and the fact that I am leaving at the end of March.
Well, it finally worked out and we had a great first meeting.
This group will be in great hands. While I leave at the end of the month I am passing the group on to Julie, an English Peace Corps Volunteer, and her wonderful counterpart Marjorie. They are amazing women. Both were formally trained last year in the Northern Regional PEPFAR Conference. I know they will be great mentors. Good luck ladies!
