HIVE Keele - is a relatively new HIV Education charity based at Keele University. We are a branch of the wider HIVE community. We aim to teach local high school-age children in order to raise awareness of HIV.
WHO ARE WE?
HIVE Keele was founded in 2014 and aims to involve students of all ages and from all courses.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We run HIV education (HIVE) programmes in schools in the local area, with the aim of increasing knowledge and awareness and decreasing stigma around HIV. In the UK these programmes are run by volunteers at Southampton, Liverpool and Leicester Universities as well as a new branch in University College London for 2014.
The charity focuses on educating 11-18 year olds in the Staffordshire area. We aim to increase their knowledge of HIV as a local issue as well as an international one.
We envision a world where HIV/AIDS no longer limits the length or quality of life. Nor does it reduce the social or economic development of communities, and where young people learn the skills to address the health crises of future generations.
In 2015/16 we taught to St Joseph's College in Stoke-on-Trent, St Ambrose College in Hale and Brine Lease School in Nantwich.
We are planning to hold many FUNdraising activities through out the academic year, as a group and by individual efforts!
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
We are always looking for VOLUNTEERS and extra hands for all our events and within schools so please GET INVOLVED with a great cause!
