HIV/AIDS Stories from Namibian Children
Basler Afrika Bibliographien
Seven Letters, HIV/AIDS Stories from Namibian Children arises from writing workshops held at the Windhoek College of Education during 2006. The programme involved teaching writing skills to more than a hundred teachers in training. The student teachers, during the course of their practice teaching, encouraged children to write their stories.
This volume features some of these stories. In one story parents name their seven children after the seven deadly letters – HIV/AIDS. Other stories show the human range of responses to the ‘killer insect’ – loss, death, suicide, yet also courage, resilience and hope.
