We are currently seeking support for this project which is geared to occupy and empower students during holidays and enable them to be conscious of their sexual behavior and HIV-AIDS.They will carry the shills acquired during the training to their various localities of our outreach project.

We are therefore seeking sponsors and partners for this project.

Your contribution and those of others will be high solicited to make this pro gramme a reality.

We look forward to your kind support and partnership.

Hope you help us get sponsors and partners for this life changing project.
