INDIANA: Indy High School Students to Deliver Safe Sex, Health Messages to Teens in Swaziland




 

Greenfield Daily Reporter (Indiana) (10.29.2013)

As recently reported in the Greenfield Daily Reporter, next month 14 Indianapolis high school students will head to Swaziland, Africa, to teach local teens about HIV/AIDS. The Indianapolis-based nonprofit Saving Orphans through Healthcare and Outreach will cover most of the $4,000-per-person trip, asking only for a $200 contribution from each of the Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School students. Cynthia Prime, CEO of Saving Orphans, thinks the Swazi teens will relate more readily to the American teens than they would to adults. Approximately one-fourth of people in Swaziland ages 15 and above is HIV-positive, according to UNICEF.
