I took this photo in May 2012 as part of the Rivne Awareness Project. The PEPFAR funded project included two trainings of trainers for both teachers/psychologists in Rivne as well as secondary school students (grades 9-11). After completing the training teachers and students worked together to implement similar trainings at their schools for their peers. On May 15th students from 5 schools in Rivne gathered in the center to take part in the last two events of the project; the ‘Chain of Knowledge’ and a candlelight memorial. The Chain of Knowledge involved students wandering the city center to talk with strangers to share their knowledge of HIV/AIDS. Students then asked individuals to write a fact about HIV on a slip of red paper that was then joined together to make a “chain of knowledge” about HIV. The chain was then displayed in the center for 2 days. In this photo students work to help finish lighting the candles of the red ribbon as community members look on.
