Working together to Beat AIDS!

On December 1, US Embassy staff met FLEX program alumni on the basketball court to highlight World AIDS Day. The event, held at the US Embassy, helped to raise awareness of the need to combat HIV, and talk about what more can be done. The American staff also got a chance to talk about their role at the US Embassy. Each year, World AIDS Day serves as a reminder that everyone must work together to prevent HIV/AIDS. The FLEX program sends Georgian high school students to the United States for a one-year cultural exchange. FLEX program alumni have returned to Georgia as leaders, and regularly do volunteer work and outreach to at-risk youth.
