ABY PROJECT-Abstinence, Be faithful for Youth
ABY PROJECT-Abstinence, Be faithful for Youth

In partnership with CORE Initiatives - funded by CARE INTERNATIONAL and USAID.

This is a specific project promoting Abstinence, Being faithful and behavior change among the youth in school and out of school -15-19 years as a strategy for controlling HIV/AIDS. The project advocates for primary abstinence for the youth who are not yet sexually active and secondary abstinence for the youth who are already sexually active. Different messages are packaged according to the type of group one is handling. The project has a special component for supporting parenting teens.

In all cases life planning skills (LPS) is important. The young people are given bargaining skills for saying No to sex. The youth are awakened to recognize vulnerable and risky places, timing, situations, bad touches and feigned friendship. Many young people fall prey just because they accepted some favour from a man or woman and now it looks that there is need to pay back "something for something love".

Different strategies are used to pass on the message including Radio show talks, other media, drama, sports activities, skits, exchange visits and debates. Parents and teachers are encouraged to support their children to make sensible decisions. If children cannot get the correct information and the right type of help from parents and teachers, they look for it else where. They usually get it from fellow youth, peers, media, internet and other places. Most likely the information they get is not best for them. Hence falling in problems like pregnancy and infections like STIs and HIV/AIDS. Peer pressure leads young people to undesired behavior like alcoholism, drug abuse and violence
