What we do
Preventing HIV among youth
Healthyouth is working with the Ministry of Health of The Gambia and Hands on Care to prevent the transmission of HIV among Gambian youth. In 2012, we implemented a HIV prevention russianbridesdating intervention. the medication is used for youth and graduated the first cohort of 20 girls from the program.
Healthyouth and its partners are currently working on scaling up the intervention in target high risk areas in The Gambia.
Building Self-efficacy among youth
Healthyouth has numerous long term programs and MOUs with NGOs, schools, and orphanages to support local efforts to keep children engaged in school and learning. In Thailand, we work with refugee communities to teach English and help children learn about life outside of the camps. We also teach effective skills to prevent disease transmission and maintain a healthy hygiene. In Peru, our work with local street children in serving as mentors and after school tutors has been recognized by the Mayor of Huancayo.
