We as St. Patrick’s Theology house would like to thank you our facilitators from AJAN for your expertise in sharing the information with us during the workshop that we had. We felt there was excellent delivery of the training for us during the workshop on AHAPPY. We strongly feel that with that training the knowledge will help us in promoting integral development of young people in our various places of our pastoral outreach which we are involved in. We found the workshop to be very enlightening and we indeed learnt a lot from it. We feel better equipped to help the young people in the places of our pastoral outreach to live a better life and working and hoping for an HIV & AIDS free society through sharing the knowledge and skills your team empowered us with. We are hopeful the knowledge and skills will enhance our outreach.

AJAN’s session on the AHAPPY GENERATION program proves to be beneficial for us Jesuit Scholastics for two main reasons. The first reason is that being young, we are concerned by this program which is immeasurably rich in that it promotes personal knowledge and the development of one’s qualities. The second is that, as young religious, we are engaged in different youth apostolates where we help them to know themselves personally and to develop their talents. At the end of this session, we realized that the AHAPPY GENERATION program is one of the best tools for anyone who is committed to the advent of a better world where no one is left out: where people live with and for others.

AJAN inculcates Christian values in their outreach programs in promoting healthy behavioral change. Most organizations give options of unhealthy sexual practices e.g., use of condoms, but AJAN advocates for abstinence till marriage which is biblical. The topics specifically targeted what majorly affects young people in our school daily, ranging from their experiences from the individual level, the family and from their environment.
