HIV/AIDS & Health Education for Students

“Project Jagriti Awakening: HIV/AIDS and Health Education for Adolescent School Children
Project Jagriti works with high school and college students to provide them with awareness on adolescent issues, safe sex practices, the risk factors associated with HIV/AIDS/STI infection, as well as the risks of drug and alcohol abuse. Using presentations, questionnaires, skits, audio-visual media, and interactive question-and-answer sessions, Maitri addresses many knowledge gaps and misconceptions surrounding sexual activity, and responds to the questions and concerns students may have regarding these issues.

Project Jagriti has seen great success in the schools. The education/awareness sessions are popular with the school’s management and amongst the students.
