Part of our mission at HINT is to contribute to the global fight against HIV/AIDS. In this regard, Heather Talbot a volunteer from England ran her first “Training of Trainers Workshop” from Jan 15-18, 2007 with about 17 participants. The trainees represent different groups of people in the society and the idea is to help them run HIV sensitisation seminars and campaigns among their own people. It costs us about US$ 400 to run a seminar for 25 educators and covers food, transportation, manuals, related material… Consider supporting these seminars. Her next seminar comes up from March 5-7 2007.
