Charlize Theron chats to Khalo Khwinana, an HIVSA community activator #GENENDIT

Charlize Theron engaged with young girls in the Choma Dreams Cafe at the Global Village today.  The concept of the cafes is to provide vulnerable young women between the ages of 15 and 25 with safe, connected and empowering spaces to access health information, social services, life skills training and support from peers and mentors.

"Young women are the most vulnerable to the spread of HIV in South Africa. Every week, 2363 young women aged 15 to 25 are infected with HIV," says Jean Armstrong, CEO of HIVSA. "Girls and young women in vulnerable communities have limited opportunities and access to safe spaces and programmes that build their resilience and reduce risk."
