It is true that the appearance rate of HIV / AIDS in recent years in Togo has decreased (2.5 in 2016 to 2.1 in 2017) but this does not prevent that the contamination continues to progress within the various social classes especially among the young people. Promiscuity, drug abuse, multi-partnership and unprotected sex are one of the problems that can lead to HIV / AIDS along with other risky behaviors that contribute to the spread of HIV / AIDS and STIs (sexually transmitted infections). These diseases affect as much in semi-urban as they do in rural areas. Thus this project is reintroduced into the list of summer projects by the NGO ASTOVOT. The project aims to inform and educate the largest number of people especially young people about HIV / AIDS and STIs. The goal is to reduce transmission, strengthen prevention and screening measures. The project also aims to build and strengthen the skills of community peer educators in conducting HIV / AIDS IE / BCC (Information Education / Communication for Behavior Change) actions. Targeted areas are considered particularly sensitive where young people have little knowledge of the risks of the disease transmission, and are usually unaffected by awareness campaigns. In addition to HIV / AIDS awareness activities, it will also have demonstrations of the first steps of the first aid that will be organized by volunteers to benefit the people.

GOALS OF THE PROJECT

The main goal is to help reduce the HIV prevalence rate in vulnerable areas.
Other goals are:
– Organize sensitization sessions on the fight against STI / AIDS in public places
– Distribute condoms
– Organize on the sidelines of the awareness campaign, practical demonstrations on the first Aids gestures

THE MAIN ACTIONS

– Volunteers will plan the educative actions, identify the targets, prepare the awareness tools and organize the outings and education sessions in the village and its surroundings.
– The activities will be carried out in several neighborhoods. Activities strive for both the dissemination of information on HIV / AIDS and STIs, as well as prevention and screening.
– Interventions: debates, organized after the presentations of films, talks, condom distributions (female and male) and information sessions on their use. Short sketches will be made to address the issues of prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) and unprotected sex.
– The volunteers will also organize activities as first aids gestures.

Housing conditions are generally primitive.
The volunteers will be housed together in the same house with several rooms (usually 2 to 4 rooms) and will live near the project site. Housing will be provided with plastic mats or straws but volunteers can however provide small inflatable mattresses or small floor mats (no bed), sleeping bag, mosquito nets etc. The kitchen will be organized by the volunteers themselves.

FOOD

Volunteers will cook and eat together their meals. In the kitchen, they will use the local products. There are many various vegetables and fruits in location, so vegetarian and vegan diets can be continued. NB: Clean drinking water available.

Internet access and electricity are limited according to the areas of intervention of the projects.

HOBBIES
Apart from the activities to be carried out on the building site, you can enjoy walks, meetings with the particularly welcoming population, organize parties and excursions to visit the surrounding villages.
