Positivo and Peace Corps, Escola Secundária de Chibuto

The project was financed by The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

We are a dynamic and flexible bunch here at Positivo, like a snake that’s swallowed a firework.  We can twist in to new directions and explode onto the scene.

We were invited by Peace Corps to use the Positivo Methodology and apply it to a malaria music workshop with a HIV component.  This was to be the first time we had tackled a public health subject apart from HIV/AIDS.

This project we were also trialling a new partnership by working with on-site Peace Corps volunteers as focal points to coordinate with schools and local government prior to our arrival.

Coming home from Maputo to Inhambane province is a revelation.

Within 2 days we organized a group from school to work with, did HIV sensibilisation, composed and recorded a song, painted a mural, gave interviews in the radio with the group and played on the timbila festival in front of thousands of people. Yeah, and in the morning of the first day we recorded Venâncio´s timbila group to have the Timbila sample on this fantastic tune….. Zavala rules !!!!

POSITIVO AND APTART, GAZA, ESCOLA SECONDARIA DE CHOKWE

The project is financed by The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). We are in the province of GAZA running music and painting workshops in Escola Secondaria de Chokwé. We will select 20 students to help paint a mural on a local primary school. The mural will incorporate 3 aspects, Peace, Mozambican Unity and HIV prevention. We will also select 20 students to be involved in music workshops. The themes of the music workshops are gender equality, the benefits of getting a HIV test and information about HIV prevention. The students will be involved in song writing, a music video and concerts. The concerts will effectively be interactive musical seminars, with HIV prevention messages for approximately 3000 school students. The finale of our project will be on Dia de Chokwé where the residents of the town will watch the students live performance and also get to the opportunity to debate with them about their mural.
