A new project has just started: AIDS and HIV beyond your own backyard

I am happy to share with you the beginning of this collaborative project I will be taking part with my students. The project is facilitated by Bob Hofman from Netherlands and it is one more of the possibilities of collaborative work given by IEARN (International and Educational Resource Network)
This project aims at making teenage students aware of the risk that this disease represents for them as well as for their partners in the world. It also aims at showing students how different cultures live this problem. I have already participated in this project twice and my students learnt a lot from it. To visit the project website, you can go to www. There, you will find a school from Avellaneda, Argentina in the different sessions of the project (that is 2002-2003-2004).

I would also like to share with you some photos from previous participations when my students were preparing the results of it.
