Sexual edu­ca­tion in schools

One important aspect of our work is sexual edu­ca­tion in schools. Each class­room visit is a 90 minute ses­sion held by two HIV posi­tive vol­un­te­ers. There, they openly talk to stu­dents about their lives with HIV, allowing the stu­dents to learn about the chro­nic dise­ase through the expe­ri­en­ces of those affec­ted. In this way, a modern and rea­listic image of living with HIV is given. Fur­ther topics are being dis­cus­sed, inclu­ding trans­mis­sion risks, anti-discri­mi­na­tion work, as well as an in-depth look at the work of Han­nö­ver­sche Aidshilfe.

As our vol­un­te­ers dis­cuss their HIV infec­tion honestly, the stu­dents are being intro­du­ced to the topic in a trus­ted envi­ron­ment, sup­por­ting the class room spi­rit. Depen­ding on the time avail­able and the matu­rity of the stu­dents, the Han­nö­ver­sche AIDS-Hilfe e.V. offers team­buil­ding exer­ci­ses and games. Finally, each stu­dent is given a small “package” with an handout, red rib­bon and a condom.
