Imagine a world where poverty is halved, boys and girls everywhere go to
school, gender disparities are eliminated, child mortality is reduced, and
maternal health is improved. Imagine HIV/AIDS is halted and its spreading
reversed, environmental resources are preserved and sustainable development
becomes an everyday practice. All this achieved by the world's countries
together, working unanimously for a better future. Is this just a daydream?

Leonard Boniface has used his
skills as a journalist to make his voice heard in the fight
against HIV/AIDS. There are over 1.5 million people living with
HIV/AIDS in his homeland of Tanzania. With thousands of people
dying every day, the Tanzanian Government has described.....
TELIP reported as an Example of a successful youth-led project
Teenage Life Programme, which works to combat AIDS, began in
Dar-Es-Salaam, where Lenny Boniface saw that a lack of awareness
of HIV/AIDS and certain behaviours and attitudes of young people
were helping to spread the disease. He started giving talks and
workshops to create awareness not only about HIV/AIDS but also
prostitution, rape, drug abuse, drunkenness, and social
responsibility. At first it was difficult, with many young
people not wanting to talk about such things, or thinking they
were too busy to deal with serious issues, but soon he was
welcomed by schools and colleges all over Tanzania. Lenny has
even produced a nationally broadcast documentary which spread
his message throughout Tanzania. Lenny says, "I want to wake
young people up to the problems that affect our country now and
in our future, so that they can tackle them. We need not feel
quite so powerless."
