Over 30 students at the public schools of Cruce de Esperanza and Maizal in the Valverde Province of the Dominican Republic recently graduated from Futbol para la Vida. These schools are both new additions to the growing network of schools, communities, and childrens camps with FPV programs, a Grassroot Soccer inspired HIV/AIDS prevention education project. The courses, each run once a week throughout May by peer educators from Batey Libertad, culminated in graduations on May 30th at Cruce de Esperanza and June 2nd at Maizal. The graduations were planned and run by the children, and included teaching HIV/AIDS facts and prevention strategies, demonstration of FPV activities, and performance of skits to friends, family, and teachers.

Congratulations to our newest FPV graduates from Escuela Cruce de Esperanza — Yhajaira, Patricia, Fiordaliza, Jonathan, Freilin, Frank, Roneidi, Kintorigo, Natanael, Wilson, Madelin, Greissy, Esthefany, Yudith, Geidy, Jocelyna, Adabelis, and Clarisa — and from Escuela Maizal — Genesis, Grisbe, Miguel, Mireliza, Lisbeth, Jeniffer, Isiora, Yamilex, Meralin, María, Griselot, Franchesca, Yaribel, Basilio, and Miguel. And thanks to all of the participating peer educators, including Yanlico, Nico, Ramon, Milanda, and Willy.
