Wake Up Pune joined the 2012 International AIDS Candlelight Vigil. Organized worldwide by the Global Network of People Living with HIV, the annual vigil seeks both to raise awareness about the realities of HIV/AIDS in our communities, and to promote positive social action. The vigil’s theme for 2012 is Promoting Health and Dignity Together.
This year, the vigil in Pune was held on May 20. Many went to rally with us at 6 PM, beginning at Golibar Maidan Shankar Sheth Road and ending at MG road. After the rally, there was a stage event with dance performances, HIV-positive speakers, a mock-up session about the HIV helpline, and more.
FOR VOLUNTEERS :
Volunteers helped ensure that this great event went as smoothly as possible! Volunteers lighted the candles and distributed them, set up the stage, set up banners and standees, set up chairs, and helped take down and clean up after the event etc.
Hope everyone who attended had fun! Because we know we did! =)
