A key element of the Umzi Wethu course at the Youth Development Programme is the principle of giving back, and each group of Umzi Wethu students are given a chance to give back to the community during their training. The Umzi 23 students chose to spend a day with Grade 7 pupils at a local primary school in the Eastern Cape as their CSI project.
The theme of discussions during the day was HIV / AIDS. Students were split into groups and the following topics were addressed:
- Facts / stats on HIV / AIDS
- Infections – how do you get HIV /AIDS
- Peer Pressure
