Roma youth continuing leading the fight against HIV/AIDS

On the 1-st of June 2010, the MTV Staying Alive Foundation officially announced that the Regional Roma Educational Youth Association (RROMA) from Kratovo, Macedonia will receive a grant for implementing an awareness campaign on HIV/AIDS and STI (sexual transmitted infections). This July 2011, the MTV Staying Alive Foundation announced that SAF will continue supporting RROMA for three more years.
The awareness campaign will not only improve knowledge, but also promote positive values about the Roma community and promote them as agents of change and people that care about their health and the health of the others that live together with them in the society. This year, RROMA will go into new communities such as Kriva Palanka, Sveti Nikole, Delcevo, Strumica, Radovis, Pehcevo and Stip. Starting from today, RROMA will continue conduct an awareness campaign based on creativity and using social media. There will be a lot of creative actions, videos, theater, role-playing, comic drawing, awareness workshops, data researches etc.
On the 1-st of December 2011, the youth of RROMA distributed flyers and condoms to create awareness about the World AIDS day in Probistip and Stip. More than 100 condoms were distributed among the people from these municipalities.
