Breaking the Silence: HIV/AIDS in Kwa Mashu

The Kwa Mashu Community Advancement Project (K-CAP), outside of Durban, South Africa, will be training 15 to 20 youth from their township in the upcoming months to become citizen journalists reporting on local health issues, particularly those related to HIV/AIDS. Through sharing their own stories, the youth K-CAP train will gain new technical skills, while hopefully helping to counter the severe stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and lower HIV rates in Kwa Mashu.
