Change Agents logo

HIV/AIDS has had devastating effects on the communities. The aim of Change Agents is to have youth and communities (parents, guardians, educators) informed on HIV/AIDS and related issues, so that positive decisions can be made. The prevalence of teenage pregnancy indicates that young people are not using condoms. Young people (puberty to young adulthood) are caught in the web of unprotected sexual encounters, which is also a societal problem. Such risky behavior within society (adults and teenagers) consequently leads to the following:

The Change Agents Project is structured to meet the needs of the children and youth using the following tools:

  • Lifeskills and campaigns through peer education
  • Awareness through edutainment
  • Out of school youth through Dialogues  and Radio programs with peers


The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Enable an environment for the peer leaders and preparation to develop other children in life skills and awareness
  • Promoting safer sexual behaviors and sexual norms among young people through working with school and raising awareness and encourage HIV/AIDS Voluntary Testing
  • Develop leadership skills and confidence amongst school children to lead in the HIV/AIDS Prevention work

Part of the Peer Educator Program is an exchange program with Germany and our Partner Organisation Kindernothilfe.
