"Concert to increase awareness of AIDS"
Two of my friends helped a local group put on a very big and successful AIDS awareness concert this past weekend. It was complete with rappers, singers, a theatre group, and even condoms and AIDS testing.
Unfortunately, my cultural barriers, higher standards of technology, and pretentious values on a quality performance prevented me from enjoying the rappers, who were lip syncing and forgetting their own lyrics. However, the crowd seemed to be enjoying the show just fine. Thus, the show was successful and effective for the intended crowd.
Nice work Elida and Jessica. You guys organized a program that was awesome, culturally appropriate and effective, and enjoyable by all - a goal all PCVs strive to achieve.
