This case study describes the African Youth Alliance's support of Botswana's Ghetto Artists Productions (GAP). In 2001, program staff selected GAP as a member of the partnership; and after project design and budget negotiations, GAP began work to reach young people in and around Francistown.GAP has contributed to positive behavior change among young people in the Francistown area and has had a larger impact in the community, proving to political leaders, religious leaders, headmasters, teachers, and parents that young people can play a significant leadership role in positive community change, and that their contribution is key to improving sexual and reproductive health, including the fight against HIV/AIDS.
