What's it about?

The youth are more vulnerable and at risk of HIV/AIDS pandemic due to negative behavior and attitude towards change leading to the spread of the pandemic. In spite of the efforts put in place to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS, Nyanza province remain high at 14.9%, the region has continued to record the highest HIV prevalence rate in the country peaking at 35% in some districts against the national prevalence arte of 7.1%. As a result, in the past two decades has registered a negative trend in all development and health indicators. Welfare Monitoring Survey of 2004 indicates that 63% of the people of Nyanza province live in absolute poverty which fuels HIV/AIDS.
A youth to youth approach in tackling behavior change communication is more practical and effective in the prevention and advocacy on positive behavior change against HIV/AIDS through football which is the worlds’ most popular sport to break down barriers and provide opportunities for even the most disadvantaged to shine.
By capitalizing on this interest, Kisumu Youth Net Group will create a platform that can be used as a tool for communicating vital messages, mobilizing communities to join the fight against HIV and challenging the plethora of myths and Stigma that surrounds the Virus.
