Learning Objectives
To enable pupils understand disease progression
Manuela went to Kivule primary school to teach about activities that cannot transmit HIV from one person to another.she also taught about positive living. These lessons are to enable pupils to understand all the processes that can lead to HIV infection and that which do not lead to HIV infection so that they can become friends to people who are HIV positive other than insulting them or isolating them selves from them. For example the following are some of the practices that can not lead to HIV infection: hugging, eating with an infected person, sharing cups and plates with the infected persons among others. Positive living refers to the state at which an infected person is living harmoniously with the HIV Virus,this can be through proper taking of ARVs in time, eating well balanced diet food, having daily physical exercise, being happy all the time, always going for an HIV test to check on the viral load and treating all the sexually transmitted diseases. This lesson was taught to enable pupils to understand and pass the information to other members who may be HIV positive. Some pupils are victims and others have their parents who are HIV positive. This lesson will enable them to talk to their parents or any other person who is HIV positive. Other information When Manuela reached school, she was welcomed by the senior woman teacher of that school and she told her that there is a girl in that school who is behaving unusual, they asked Manuela to talk to her because for them as teachers they tried to ask her but she could not tell them the problem, this girl refused. Manuela after the lesson called the girl as she is a pupil in Life Skills class too, Manuela asked her about what she is going through and this girl was able to tell Manuela that she is really going through a lot. She told Manuela that her mother divorced his dad and his dad brought in another woman who is really mistreating her and her siblings, she doesn’t know what to do about it but she is planning to live that home and just go away. Manuela counselled her and Manuela has plans to meet with the father of that girl with some teachers to solve the situation in that home. This girl is called Namulondo Mary and she is a very bright girl in primary seven. Manuela and other teachers are looking forward to help this girl so that her future is not ruined
