Coordinator for Nepal and Bhutan led the observance of World AIDS Day with a series of events for staff members and families. The event also provided an opportunity for UN Cares to reach to our families and increase their awareness and understating on the new facts related to HIV and AIDS.The events were participated with enthusiasm by the children and spouses of UN staffs.On 30 November 2013, an Interactive session for children was organized focussing this year’s message of “Open up reach out, zero discrimination and transform”. 50 Children participated in the interactive sessions designed separately for children aged 10 and younger and the other group comprising of adolescents above 10 years. The session was more focused for adolescents with activities such as face painting, quiz, jigsaw, artwork, story telling and poem writing on HIV. Children drew beautiful paintings and wrote inspiring poems to express their understating about stigma and discrimination and very well linked their ideas with the butterfly which is the theme of WAD 2013. In order to ensure that children could come out of their shyness and open up, session was facilitated by a young staff member with lot of experience on dealing with young people.
