In a bid to control new HIV/AIDS infections and attain an Aids-free generation, Ghetto Artists Organization has embarked on a multiple concurrent partnership (MCP) project in tertiary schools in Francistown and the surrounding villages.
With students studying at different tertiary institutions being of mature age, the liberty and lack of parental care at their disposal, most of them are involved in sexual activities.
It is against this backdrop that these tertiary students need to be equipped with the skills that will help them to protect themselves from contracting the virus. Director, Katlego Mononyane said tertiary students are urged to refrain from engaging into sexual activities through the play.
Some of the messages spread through theatre are sticking to one partner if not abstain.
Mononyane added that the students are taught the correct and consistent condom use in order to protect themselves from the deadly HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unwanted pregnancies.
