SSCS part 7 (Hluti solved)

Ok, so this Friday & Saturday we are launching the event in 4 town in 2 days.

3 of the towns have AMICAALL office so they are each handling there own responsibilities in those towns. But our office is responsible for organizing an event in a smaller town called Hluti.

Sabelo & I went there today and got it all set up PSI is helping with a lot of the set up. The venue was secured as well as power and we meet with the police. The local FA members are also helping with local advertising and making sure hte local teams come to the event.

We got a free ride to the Hluti (about an hour away) in a Health VCT (Volunteer Counseling Training) truck which also does medical exams, HIV testing, etc once a week.

Now just have to hope what we put together holds up for the actual event in 2 days.

It's is exciting.
