New ?Life in my Shoes? HIV Education Project

Discussion in 'PSHE' started by BodyandSoulCharity, Mar 8, 2011.

  1. Did you know that almost half of London students say they have insufficient information about HIV? Or that young people overwhelmingly say that they would not hold hands or share a cup with someone who is HIV positive?

    Pioneering UK HIV charity Body & Soul is calling out to students and teachers to participate in a unique educational project that will dispel common stigmas about the disease.




    ?Life in my Shoes? is a campaign that will educate young Britons about HIV through a creative learning platform. The campaign is currently underway a competition that gives students aged 14 to 21 the chance to star in a dramatic feature film that profiles the real stories of youth living with HIV. The film will start production this spring and be released as part of an in-school curriculum resource this autumn.

    Students can audition online until March 17 by visiting www.lifeinmyshoes.org

    We encourage you to share this information with your students. As well, to learn about how to incorporate Life in my Shoes and HIV education into your lesson plans this autumn, please contact emily@bodyandsoulcharity.org or call on 020 7923 6880.

    You can also learn more about the programme by reading an article that was published in TES in February: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6070587
