Paul organized a great blood testing tour of Diambo (Evan’s village) and Taredji (Jonno’s village). We tested 87 people. There was a 25-30% syphilis rate and one HIV-positive result.
We spent two nights in Diambo and one night in Taredji. In Taredji, Jonno’s MSS girls (many of them also participated in our girls leadership camp) performed a great theater sketch that attracted a huge crowd. We passed out condoms (in secret to many teenage boys, much in the manner of a drug-deal, and to not so many older women who thought the condoms were candy or medicine) in addition to teaching many adolescents how to put on a condom correctly.
This was a great project to end our service with, especially because it involved working with our two closest friends Evan and Jonno.
