  • Eliminate or alleviate the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV and AIDS
  • Encourage young people to take concrete action to protect themselves from HIV infection
  • Demonstrate innovation and creativity in their activities
  • Reflect and honour the culture in which the project operates.
