NGO "Youth Against AIDS"

The organization's focus and primary long-term goals relate to the involvement of young people in work with their peers, educating them about HIV, AIDS, sexually transmitted disease (STIs) and other issues which relate to one's health and one's lifestyle. We seek to change lifestyles so as to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS in our country.
The organization is working since 1997, organising educational and informational activities such as workshops in schools and youth centres, discussions, summer camps and street actions, as well as informational activities in popular night clubs and festivals.
In the latest years we have developed our activities also in the field of non-formal education as a general tool for working with young people; and in prevention work against human trafficking. Plans of the organization for the future are to develop a human rights work group within the organization, because discrimination and intolerance is a raising and threatening issue in Latvia's society.
YAA is sending, hosting and coordinating organization in EVS projects.
