For 2011’s World AIDS Day, Peace Corps Burkina Faso’s Community Health and AIDS Taskforce (CHAT) designed a project that was funded by SPA grants integrating HIV/AIDS awareness murals and educational symposiums all across the country. Over 70 Peace Corps Volunteers participated reaching more than 50 communities and hundreds of target populations. I held several HIV/AIDS ‘ceremonies’ where different target populations of villagers pledged to spread awareness, practice safe sex and get tested by leaving their handprint on the wall after taking the pledge. This photo was taken at the clinic in my village (where the mural was painted) after the session that the local midwife and I ran with my 6th grade girls group.
