Support for new program targeting adolescent females in upon the SiHLE (Sisters, Informing, Health, Loving and Empowering) program for peer led group counseling.

The GTC provides a healthy environment where the trainees are perfected in their character by evangelizing, shepherding, constant fellowship with the Word and following an organized schedule. After the first stage of training they are sent out to go to different cities, states, and countries preaching the gospel of the kingdom in order to hasten the Lord’s coming.
The SIHLE intervention is a small group, skills-training intervention to reduce risky sex behavior among African American adolescent females. Through interactive discussions in groups of 10–12 girls, the intervention emphasizes ethnic and gender pride, and enhances awareness of HIV risk reduction strategies such as abstaining from sex, using condoms consistently, and having fewer sex partners. Through the use of role plays and cognitive rehearsal, the intervention enhances confidence in initiating safer-sex conversations, negotiating for safer sex, and refusing unsafe sex encounters. In addition, intervention deliverers model proper condom use skills and emphasize the importance of healthy relationships.
The film empowers those who live with HIV/AIDS, inspires compassion for people living with the virus, and motivates others to avoid getting infected. This film is about fear and confusion, hope and anger, joy, and the remarkable resilience that HIV+ young people share. Blood Lines illustrates the reality of being young and having HIV. It is an emotionally devastating yet ultimately uplifting view of young, positive people—a view that is completely personal, because it is seen from the inside out.
