AIDSTanzania is a student-led service trip organization from the College of William and Mary. We travel once a year to the rural areas outside of Arusha in The United Republic of Tanzania to do HIV/AIDS education and testing. We educate local people on anything from the biology to prevention of HIV. We also host free HIV testing days throughout the year in the local villages, even when we are not in country. On our trip this past January we began a "Train the Trainer Program" where after the general education of our students, we prepare them to become peer HIV educators.
We have three main goals as an organization. One is creating a sustainable HIV testing regime in the communities outside of Arusha. Next is, establishing cross-cultural links between the College of William and Mary and the Arusha area. Lastly, we want to halt the spread of HIV/AIDS through prevention education in both the United States and Tanzania.
