Urban Legends & PCPP update

So Urban Legends is basically an award ceremony that each AMICAALL office runs that honors the people, businesses, etc of community that are doing great things to help the spread of HIV.

And I have been asked to be one of the judges for picking the winners from the nominees. That is very exciting to be apart of.

And in order for my PCPP to be more capacity building I have had to come up with some interesting additions. So now I will be working with a local organization that trains workers in installing electrical wiring and such for the fixing up stage. And hopefully working with the PC office through their brand new Education section that is just starting up this year, by the way they dropped the NGO sector PCV that were coming in cause of financial reasons both PC and the economy of Swaziland.

Group 9 will be half Health HIV and the other half education, basically the PCV's will be teaching the teachers. And guess what I have 4 pre-school teachers that live in the city where the training will be happening. so i am hoping to get them involved with the PC training and helps improve the teachers that work in the preschools in especially in the one that i am fixing up.
