The media are invited to a press conference by the South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) to highlight the excellent work done our learners to curb the spread of HIV and AIDS in South Africa and America as part of the Manenberg Artesia Aids Project (MAAP).
