Connecting local responses around the world
The Competence facilitators trained the secondary school teachers with intention to be extended. The teachers that were trained as Competence facilitators went back to their school and self-assessed their pupils.With regards to HIV/AIDS competence process, the pupils were determined and set themselves (their school) as target for inprovement. The 25 self-assessed school representatives then became change agents for their school who sensitize, motivate and follow up on their colleagues/schools to acheve their set targets. The teachers continue to facilitate the process in their school. The school is from time to time re-assessed to see changes in their HIV/AIDS competence process.
As a result, some pupils are now found sensitizing their colleagues on the HIV/AIDS prevention and control. Some are even estending the positive practices to their respective communities.
