Zimbabwe: Youth against Aids celebrate 10 years

Beauty, Blessing, Gift and Faith are the names of four among hundreds of teenagers who belong to Youth Against AIDS (YAA) clubs run by the Jesuit AIDS Project (JAP) in Zimbabwe. They live up to the promise of their names, sparkling with enthusiasm to be agents of change in their world. I met them towards the end of 2007 at a YAA outreach at St Peter Kubatanta, a Jesuit school in Highfield, a poor and overcrowded, ‘high density’ neighbourhood in Harare.
