Our annual HIV-prevention day camps are coming up! Summer volunteers will be visiting partner communities to teach primary school students about HIV-prevention, sanitation issues, deforestation, and to lead meaningful explorations of gender disparities.
Camp Hope is a residential summer camp for HIV-positive youths in Malawi. Since 2010, World Camp has been helping to provide psychosocial support to youths facing a serious illness coupled with stigma and discrimination. This summer Camp Hope will serve 150 youths living positively with HIV.
World Camp Clubs are after-school clubs focused on empowering youths through community activism. World Camp began forming WCCs at primary schools in the Malikha School Zone in 2012. Each year the program grows to serve more schools.
