About the Presenters:
Identical twin sisters, Hassanatu (Hassa) and Hussainatu (Hussa) Blake, are committed to the enrichment of youth globally. As young adults, they lived, studied, and worked in Europe, the Caribbean, and Southern Africa. Through their journeys, they observed the growing importance of technology in education internationally. Their passion for youth leadership, education and mentorship, led them to establish Focal Point Global in February 2009. Focal Point Global is a Maryland based non-profit organization focused on educating youth globally about leading social issues through innovative technology.
About the Presentation:
Focal Point Global is revolutionizing education by providing a fresh, new approach to educate, empower, and mobilize youth to make a difference using global peer collaboration and sharing. Our pilot project, US-Namibia HIV/AIDS Education Initiative, brought 10 students from Baltimore, MD and Swakopmund, Namibia together to discuss HIV/AIDS in their communities during a 3-day webinar via Skype. During this interactive conference, students identified and shared the risk factors and emerging issues of acquiring HIV/AIDS, and develop a key project to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS in their respective communities. This presentation will take you through this project, which began February 2010, detailing the curriculum, the webinar, and youth projects with pictures and youth participants testimonies.
