We are peer educators of Youth Self- Employment Foundation (YOSEFO). There were 10 of us who received training on how to facilitate other youth on HIV prevention. Our project is to be implemented for a period of 9 months commencing from March to October in the year 2009 in six Shehias of Western district of Unguja namely Fumba, Bweleo, Dimani, Kombeni, Maungani and Shakani.

The main objective of our project is to increase the knowledge and skills on HIV prevention to more than 400 young fishermen and women in order to reduce risk behavior which leads to new HIV and AIDS infection.
