OROL is one organization that continues to inspire me with the creativity and passion with which their workers and volunteers mobilize diverse communities for social change such as encouraging people to get tested for HIV and to protect their sexual and reproductive health and rights. I have been impressed by their work with young people, orphans, blind students, in-school youths, among other groups over the years. They have used drama, peer education, and other innovative channels to promote safe and healthy behaviour among Nigerians, promoting compassion for less privileged groups such as disabled children, orphans, and promoting tolerance for persons living with HIV by advocating the message “stop that stigma”. I witnessed their drama about HIV prevention at an International Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 2011. I am proud of their work and I would encourage them to keep up the passion.
