===Purpose and Approach===
+
The Volunteer July 1962 page 2 http://peacecorpsonline.org/historyofthepeacecorps/primarysources/19620701%20Volunteer_Jul.pdf
The Lawra Methodist Clinic and the Krachi-East District Health Directorate will work with Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and education in rural Volta Lake communities that are not easily accessible through traditional overland means. These are remote and isolated island communities which have not really been target destinations for HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns. This is because the rainy season from April to October often floods the poor roads, making it difficult for people to travel on land; members of these small island communities have no other option than to board wooden canoes to the district capital of Dambai to sell or buy goods at the market, and access professional medical care. 
 
 
 
Along with translator, Maclean Nudevu, navigator, Kwasi Matey, and resource person Madam Naawin Ziri, the PCVs and other counterparts will board a boat to the island communities located on the Volta Lake. The communities involved in this project are: Dambai, Mepekorpe, Yeji, Katanka, Kete Krachi, Paikatanga, Asukawkaw, Kwadjokrom, Nsuta, and Kpando.
 
 
 
In each community, the team will:
 
a) Sensitize and create HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention 
 
b) Initiate discussions and activities that will promote the acceptance of PLWHA (A PLWHA will be part of the team)
 
 
 
Community counterparts and the Krachi-East District HIV/AIDS Coordinator will play leading roles in organizing the events and visits to the communities. The PCVs will be supportive as and when needed.
 
 
 
In conclusion, the project specifically seeks to promote the acceptance of Persons Living With HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and will promote the interest and needs of these remote communities for future HIV/AIDS educational programs.
 
 
 
===Objectives===
 
 
 
#Sensitize and create HIV/AIDS Awareness and Prevention among targeted communities
 
## Provide information on basic facts about HIV/AIDS
 
## Distribute condoms and educational resources
 
#Promote the acceptance of People Living With HIV/AIDS
 
##Introduce a PLWHA to share testimony with the targeted communities
 
## Encourage healthy and cordial relationship between PLWHA and other community members
 
## Encourage the targeted communities to buy products/item made by PLWHA
 
## Inspire other people living with any kind of disability or illness.

===Project Reflection and Sustainability===
 
An instituted Planning Team will be responsible for ensuring that all project activities are implemented according to plan. The team will develop a list of questions that the project beneficiaries are expected to provide responses to after every community activity. The responses provided will give an idea as whether progress is being made or not.
 
 
 
As the project team moves from community to community, project activities will be monitored closely and it is hoped that the lessons learnt from earlier communities will be incorporated into the pending activities in the remaining communities.
