Try out a non-formal education programme with your group
WAGGGS and our partners have developed loads of activities, badges and project ideas to help you understand the facts about HIV AIDS, how you can help prevent it and how you can support those already living with the disease.
The AIDS Badge supports girls and young women to work towards prevention, eliminating discrimination and providing care for those already living with HIV and AIDS. The badge was developed in conjunction with UNAIDS and the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO). Download the badge curriculum and buy the badge from our shop.
