About the JIJUE 1 Million Campaign

JIJUE 1 Million campaign is a grassroots movement of the Kenyan youth, seeking to revolutionalize HIV prevention. Our vision is an AIDS Free Africa. Our mission is to create a movement of caring communities that make responsible and informed choices with regard to life and HIV/AIDS through knowing their HIV status, prevention of infection, care & support of persons living with HIV/AIDS and mitigation of socioeconomic impact of HIV/AIDS.

We are bound by a shared VISION and a purpose; to systematically scale up efforts by the youth and our stakeholders, to make tangible contribution towards HIV prevention efforts in a systematic and creative manner. We are mobilizing 1 million youth to know their correct HIV status, and become ambassadors of a positive vision - An AIDS Free Africa.

We are a community of passionate youth, inspired by the experience of working together with our peers on HIV prevention, care and support. We are partners with like minded organizations, people and opportunities, combining expertise with our experience, matching capabilities with our zeal.

We are a network of caring communities, building relationships with our peers and walking together towards healthy lifestyles. We understand that the young people represent more than half of Kenya’s population and ideally constitute the window of hope in the era of HIV/AIDS. Thus, we are in pursuit of transformation, believing that HIV begins and Stop with me!

In as much as we continuously float between situations and settings that put us at risk, we believe that helping each other to lead healthy lifestyles, making friends with our peers living with HIV and walking with them in their stories, we can provide hope to a broken world.

We believe in the length of the journey - changing lives, one at a time, but we remain steadfast that our movement will bridge us to a future free from AIDS.

Join us in this journey.
