For 2011's World AIDS Day (Journee Mondial du SIDA), Peace Corps Burkina Faso's Community Health and AIDS Taskforce (CHAT) designed a project that was funded by SPA grants integrating HIV/AIDS awareness murals and educational symposiums all across the country. Over 70 Peace Corps Volunteers participated reaching more than 50 communities and hundreds of target populations. In my village of Bapla (SW Burkina Faso), I held several HIV/AIDS "ceremonies" where different target populations of villagers pledged to spread awareness, practice safe sex and get tested by leaving their handprint on the wall after taking the pledge. This photo was taken at the clinic in my village showing PCV Emily Hooker (Navielgane, Burkina Faso 2010-2012) painting Mme Dabire's hand (the clinic midwife) to take her pledge as an example to all the women in the village who then flocked to the mural to participate. This is an example of SPA in action.
