Media Impact Communications Officer, Lindsey Wahlstrom, describes her experience at a community fair in San Juan Ostuncalco, Guatemala.  This fair was one of twelve fairs hosted by Asociacion Comunicares, with the support of Media Impact and the Guatemalan Ministry of Health.  At the community events, volunteers use games and interactive presentations to educate youth about the different aspects of HIV and AIDS - prevention, transmission, treatment and stigmas.  Before leaving, youth are invited to write a message or a draw a picture in the book "Dejando Huellas" or "Leaving Footprints."
