In order to make this handbook practical and engaging for trainers, community-based volunteers and service providers, the compilers sought the voices and perspectives of children from the Uzumba Maramba Pfungwe (UMP) district of Zimbabwe, where a series of dialogues was held.These views and voices are interwoven throughout the handbook, creating a backdrop as the training unfolds.
"Children to the Fore" is a four-day journey that examines the harsh impact of HIV and some cultural practices on children's rights, and then allows for the collective development of community solutions for environmental change. It is based on fact and accumulated knowledge and experience, and strengthened by a group of fictional characters who have confronted the reality of HIV at community level.
