Community Day 2019

  • Akeri Soccer Field Akeri Road Arusha Tanzania (map)

Each year, our Community Health Facilitators and Teaching Partners work passionately during the course of our program in Tanzania to deliver a day of joy, laughter, and awareness. They work pamoja (“together”) with village officials and school headmasters to create a space for anyone to take action in community health. They collaborate with incredible community members to play games, put on HIV stigma plays, hear people's stories, and encourage HIV testing. Community Day represents love, acceptance, joy, and a new future for people to act on that which is of importance to their health and quality of life. Hundreds of people come to Akeri field to join hands with us and teach us what it looks like to stand together and push for community health.
