- HEALTH: HIV/AIDS PREVENTION
Through our prevention program, we implement an intensive prevention program, systematically targeting small geographical areas in a relatively short time as to create a synergy of motivation and action against HIV/AIDS amongst all communities living in the area.
Our prevention strategy incorporates Behavior Change from Communication as we recognize that environments influence people’s decisions and activities involved with HIV/AIDS and that it is not enough to attract and interest people in the prevention program, but is also crucial to motivate people to make decisions and take actions based on the information we provide.
Through the synergy of our prevention campaigns, use of peer educators, and our previous behavioral impacts, we are confident that our prevention campaigns will lead to behavior change. Other strategies are drama, songs and community awareness
As part of our thematic areas, we implement educational programs to empower children from different communities in Nigeria such Youth development, early childhood development, pre-and after school programs. Our educational activities are also carried out through participatory learning, trainings and workshops to help children and young people to build self-esteem and awareness
3. SOCIO ECONOMIC/POVERTY ALLEVIATION
Poverty in Nigeria used to be a rural phenomenon, but lately, it has become a common rural and urban experience which correlates directly with family size and the number of earners in a particular household. In order to effectively combat the spread of HIV/AIDS, it is very important that the relationship between poverty and the disease be determined, with special reference to a poor resource setting, this is essential because poverty have a multiplier effect on food security, nutrition as well as reducing new case and caring for those already infected
By designing and delivering a quality, comprehensive entrepreneurship training course tailored to meet the needs and interests of youth, and build on their existing skills, OROL hopes to give Nigerian youth the skills to launch and lead their businesses through business knowledge, mentoring support, technical assistance, and linkages to financing.
The overall goal of our entrepreneurship programs is to reduce the spread and mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS
