GALAEI is dedicated to addressing issues that affect Latino and LGBT communities in Philadelphia, especially in regard to HIV/AIDS. Your support allows us to continue to promote accountability from all systems that serve our community through education, representation, and prevention. Your donation can help improve the quality of life for Philadelphia Latino and LGBT communities in 3 primary ways:
- EDUCATION: Supporting youth through our RAVE (Reaching Adolescents Via Education) program which offers Youth Empowerment workshops to youth throughout Philadelphia on topics such as self-esteem, leadership development, and conflict resolution. Your support will help us create and distribute promotional and educational materials to reach more youth in need.
- REPRESENTATION: GALAEI works in partnership with other Latino-serving agencies across Philadelphia to hold National Latino AIDS Awareness Day (NLAAD) each year in October. Your support will help NLAAD reach several hundred people each year, which offers free HIV testing, health screenings, education on issues affecting the Latino community as well as plenty of food, dancing and activities for children.
- PREVENTION: Each year GALAEI reaches over 7,000 individuals with HIV prevention and testing messages. Your support will help GALAEI create educational materials and purchase safer sex kits that will be distributed during outreach at clubs, parks, streets and other areas attracting high-risk individuals.
