  • Carnival of Learning

    AHIP holds an annual carnival of learning designed to create an avenue for young people (age 10-24), especially in-school, to interact and showcase talents in various aspects of learning. It targets those who have been beneficiaries of AHIP in school program or have been trained as peer health educators to compete with one another. The organizer ensures that roles reserved for sexes are competed for in the reversed order (i.e. supposed role for women are competed for by males and vice versa). It serves as an avenue of bringing private and public schools together to compete under one umbrella, which normally does not happen. It also serves as an evaluation tool for the project as students are afforded the opportunity to test individual self-esteem and speech presentation techniques. The carnival also serves as an avenue to identify and encourage talents in young people. It creates awareness for both school administrators and students to assess their students’ strength and where there is need for improvement, which is an essential part of learning. Finally, the competition serves as an avenue for young people to see that there are no jobs reserved for any particular sex (male or female).
