EDUCATIONAL EVENTS

CANDLE LIGHT CEREMONY

On the 15th of May the school had a candle light ceremony. This event has turned to one of the school’s annual events as it is one the world’s oldest and largest grassroots mobilizationcampaigns for HIV awareness. The International Candlelight Memorial takes place every 19th of May. This event reminds us those that are affected by the HIV epidemic, including people living with HIV in all their diversity: being women, men and young people.  In the event we were joined by the local social worker Phumla Gojela who explained the purpose of us joining together for this event to the learners.

The event is always education and yet emotional as most of us have lost people very close to our hearts because of HIV/AIDS.

“Reflect on our past preparing for future.”
