Youth Health Education (HIV / AIDS Education in Schools)
YWAM is one of the few organisations in Stung Treng tackling HIV/AIDS through education, teaching up to 3,000 junior and high school children every year using the book “True Love Waits”. Students are taught how HIV is transmitted and the various ways to protect against it, with an emphasis on abstinence before and faithfulness during marriage. Other related topics taught are relationships, alcohol and drug abuse.
We have provided this education to hundred of students aged between 14-18, secondary – high school in around Stung Treng province’s school each year.
We believe this play very important role to reduce and stop the transmission of HIV/AIDS among the young teenager and adolescent in the province and around the Cambodia through providing awareness about HIV/AIDS and other youth health lessons.
