TeachAIDS is pleased to announce the launch of its first East African animation. This version has been adapted to address the social and cultural challenges facing HIV/AIDS education in Rwanda and features voices of actors from the Rwanda Cinema Center. The animation is in Kinyarwanda, one of the country’s official languages.

In partnership with numerous local and national organizations, the animation will be provided in rural and urban areas throughout the country for free. The animations will be used as part of CARE International’s Communities Allied Against Violence and AIDS Project (CAVA) targeting 35,000 community members.

“The animations provide clear information on HIV&AIDS prevention and transmission. The strength of the TeachAIDS model is that it is able to reach diverse audiences as it succeeds in transcending age, gender, and socio-cultural divisions.” - Maimouna Toliver, Gender Mainstreaming Specialist at CARE International-Rwanda
