(i) In-school and Out of School Youth: Our educational programs for young people in and out of school serve as part of our risk-reduction incentives for vulnerable populations. It is essential then for young people to be informed about the consequences of an active sexual lifestyle so as to make informed choices. We started the “Passion Squad”, clubs which reach out other students through creative outlets like video screenings, drama pieces in addition to workshops we provide.
