Conducting awareness campaigns and supporting young peer educators who take charge of the “Friends of Youth” kiosks, are part of Ambatovy’s various actions to combat HIV/AIDS both within the workplace and its host communities. Over the past three months, 25 young peer educators from the TAMAGA kiosk in Toamasina have benefited from training funded by Ambatovy and provided by the Regional Task Force on HIV / AIDS Prevention. It should be noted that other training sessions, conducted in collaboration with the Regional Directorate of Youth and Sports in Atsinanana and the Malagasy Red Cross also took place during this period. In the framework of young peer educators’ capacity building, they focused on sports entertainment techniques and first aid. Besides, Ambatovy supported the establishment of a dozen youth kiosks in the Atsinanana and Alaotra Mangoro regions. Ambatovy particularly plans to provide the TAMAGA kiosk in Toamasina, which is among the most dynamic and also the most frequented by other youngsters, with new equipment.
