Matindi Cooperation Circle (CC) is a community-run, community-based, non-profit and non-partisan youth group established in 2001. This CC was initiated by young people from different religions. Their major goal is to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS in their society. Members are implementing a youth-to-youth project with funding from the Global Aids Interfaith Alliance. The project targets people aged 14- 30 years old and focuses on behavioral change. Members have established 11 youth clubs and trained 60 peer educators who share the information with fellow young people in their particular areas. They have distributed 1,000 T-shirts advocating voluntary counseling and testing. Their other activities include awareness campaign meetings, the establishment of youth clubs, peer education training, and counseling.
