Circle of Friends

This video examines the story of five children who have been affected by AIDS. The five children, Jessie, Chimwemwe, Lute, Benson, and Benwell, reside in Malawi. Each child has lost one or more parents to death from AIDS. The children live in poverty and need to take on more responsibility and provide for their families. Issues that are highlighted in the program include the impact of AIDS on the family structure, roles within the family and social justice. A teacher's guide is available.
