Primary Schools in Kaberamaido make Stay Alive their own.

Coming to Kaberamadio in the wake of Stay Alive training, the town was a buzz with an excited, eager energy. Roughly 20 schools participated in the training, with over 60 headmasters, teachers, parents, religious leaders, and district officials participating. I wasn’t expecting much as the training took place only weeks before my visit. However, I was shocked to find all 20 primary schools ready and willing to demonstrate their own unique implementation of Stay Alive.

Stay Alive is an after school program that teaches children the skills and tools they need to stay HIV/AIDS free through the creation of songs, dramas, skits, and poems. On top of that, it highlights critical thinking, the ability and choice to say no, making good decisions, treating yourself and others with respect, the importance of education, and planning for a hopeful future. I found that some schools generalized Stay Alive across the entire student body, giving each student opportunity to participate. Some clubs plan on starting income generating projects, such as a “Stay Alive” garden, to raise transportation fees and take their message on the road to other neighboring schools. They hope to start “Stay Alive” competitions where each school in Kaberamaido can perform and share their vision of how to Stay Alive.   

One of the most memorable visits was to Alem Primary School. I was greeted with a very touching and humbling song highlighting students’ feelings about Trivani, Asayo’s Wish Foundation and the Stay Alive Program. And I just so happened to have a camera with me…

Stay tuned for more posts with additional info about the Stay Alive Program.

Until then,
