The Botshabelo branch of the Positive Action campaign was formed in August 2018 and officially launched on 5 January 2019.
The purpose of the campaign, which was established by Sello Mkhalipi and Molahlehi Taba, is to end Aids by 2030. The organisation is focused on people living with HIV/Aids and to fight for the rights of those affected.
“We can’t achieve our goal without the support of different stakeholders and the community as a whole. All of us have a responsibility to fight this disease and together we can win this battle. Therefore, I would like to thank everyone who honoured our invitation and came to celebrate with us today,” said Mahadiyo Cleo Mooko, Botshabelo chairperson.
“We would like to congratulate the Botshabelo Positive Action campaign executive committee on this an important initiative. We need more youth programmes that incorporate both sport and HIV/Aids education in order to touch the lives of these kids, so they can make informed decisions as they grow up. It is our job to take the reins on the global goals and be change makers,” Shine Banyane said. – Lebakeng Nkabi
