This campaign aims to raise funds for the realization of the Summer Camp-ConSOLidar Ties IV, which aims to provide 15 children with HIV, a space where they can share experiences / doubts, directed to the common factor, HIV

The SOL Association in the scope of its intervention, over 25 years, with children and young people infected with the HIV virus, at Casa SOL, has found that the group effect has a determining influence on the development of healthy attitudes towards HIV /AIDS.

In this sense, and in view of what has been experienced in children and young people infected / affected by HIV who are in a natural context of life, and who are monitored at home in the CAI valence, it has been perceived that the subject of HIV is a great taboo . The lack of communication within families leads to a difficulty in promoting and acquiring healthy habits and positive attitudes towards the disease.

Thus, SOL, realizing the importance of sharing and demystifying attitudes and behaviors towards HIV, promoted the creation of the ConSOLidar Ties Vacation Camp.

The ConSOLidar Laços fields, to be developed in a welcoming and safe space, will allow children and young people who have no institutional support to acquire health and nutrition habits and social skills, which are important for their physical and psychological development.

Competences in terms of trust, motivation, respect for others, resilience, assertiveness, cooperation, self-esteem, communication and conflict management and resolution, will be important in dealing with the disease.

Parallel to this, and with a great vulnerability of these age groups to different risk behaviors, it is essential to have spaces for sharing experiences and doubts directed to the common factor, which is to be HIV carriers, with emphasis on the importance of protect and protect others.

The ConSOLidar Laços fields will contribute to a better understanding of the beliefs and attitudes towards HIV / AIDS by infected children and young people, promoting a better understanding and enhancing the transformation of knowledge in the adoption of protective practices.
