From the beginning of August, I have worked with a dynamic group of youngsters, leading and guiding them into becoming independent and leaders of the church as well as their immediate community. Some tough stuff has been dealt with such as Relationships, HIV and AIDS, STIGMA and Love in Action. The youth has grown remarkably and made suggestions of leading a youth service at church. The theme of the service was discussed and will include HIV and Aids. They said that they want to be seen and heard and that they want to play a positive role in their church. The ideas were forward to the Leadership and they welcomed the idea. Planning is in process and the youth are looking forward to the service.
Church mobilisation has definitely worked towards HIV Competence of this church and FOLLOWED a people’s approach that is called the ABCD approach that we as Mfesane make part of our programs. With the correct mindset and attitude a lot can be achieved.
