Game for the World Project in Tanzania

Game for the World is being used in collaboration with Restless Development and Dance4Life International in their HIV/AIDS training for disadvantaged youth in the remote areas of Iringa,Tanzania.
Restless Development is active in 50 countries with 1,000 young men and women working in communities across Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
Dance4life is a global campaign uniting young people (age 13-25) around the world to push back the spread of HIV and AIDS and improve global sexual health. Game for the World is produced and distributed by Games for Life, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that raises funds to donate games for organizations worldwide.
In this project, Game for the World is empowering youth, providing them with knowledge to talk about sexuality and reproductive health issues. Along with it, they will adopt attitudes and practices that protect them.

The project’s goal is to train 48 volunteers in using The Game so they, in turn, can train 8,000 students in HIV/AIDS prevention.

It’s known that HIV infection among adolescents in Tanzania rises steeply after the age of 15 due to poverty, gender inequality, conflicting sexual norms, promiscuous sexual behavior, a culture of silence, and a lack of knowledge on HIV transmission. By the age of 20, girls experience about five times the prevalence of HIV compared to boys.

Although national efforts to address these factors have increased, still, more than 1.5 million Tanzanians are infected with HIV, with new infections occurring every day.

The results of this project will be instrumental in achieving Tanzania’s National Multi-sectoral Strategic Framework on HIV and AIDS and the National Strategy on Economic Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Shown below are villagers in Mufindi, Tanzania courageously sharing information about HIV/AIDS.
