In-Service Training: PEPFAR

This training was focused on raising HIV awareness amongst leaders in Ukraine.  Each Peace Corps volunteer brought two Ukrainian citizens, a NGO manager and a youth leader. For five days we learned about the negative stigmas of HIV, the biology behind the virus, and how to teach others preventative measures. During this training my community partner was able to connect with a nationwide network of HIV advocacy organizations and create a path for a young orphan boy living with HIV to live out his dream. This summer the boy will visit the Black Sea for the first time free of charge.
