VOICES March: Amurt

On Thursday, March, 24, 2010, we will be highlighting the work of Amurt, a 501 C3 and a volunteer-led international organization founded in India. Amurt’s work in Kenya has focused on youth and community improvement by creating nine youth resource centers in Nyanza-central and coast provinces-that provide youth with a safe place to meet, sports opportunities, IT classes, language classes, and life skills training that will assist them in finding a job. To date they have trained 135 youth peer educators to dispel myths and stigma associated with HIV and AIDS and have creatively used hip-hop and the arts to educate countless young people about regular HIV testing and sex education.

This Saturday:
