So, with 27 countries already on board, dance4life is excited to be exploring new possibilities. As promised, I’d like to share with you some news. Next week, colleagues will be visiting Pakistan and Ethiopia to talk to local organisations about rolling out dance4life there. Exciting! New countries of course always offer challenges, both culturally and as each country/region has it’s own specific HIV and AIDS issues. In Ethiopia, for example, we will reaching out to young people from a nomadic background – a VERY new experience for dance4life! But it’s great that dance4life is going to be enriched by these new cultures and environments, and that we will be able to reach even more young people to create change, pushing back HIV on a global level.
My colleagues will be allowing us a glimpse into their experiences …so watch this blog next week to hear more from Jacquelien and Susan in Pakistan, and Colin and Kate in Ethiopia. It’s going to be great!
