This 15-minute film shows how puppetry, which is a traditional cultural medium for entertainment and delivery of messages to the population, is being used as a powerful HIV and AIDS communication tool in Sri Lanka.
The ILO provided technical assistance to the Zonta Club 11 of Colombo in Sri Lanka - an organization of professional businesswomen leaders working together to advance the status of women - to develop a project funded by the AIDS Foundation of Lanka on HIV and AIDS awareness through 'edutainment'.
Performances of the puppet show 'Mahadanamuththa Oba Amathai' ("Mahadanamuththa Addresses You") have been held at a wide variety of locations, including the Ministry of Labour & Labour Relations, the Sri Lanka Ports Authority, the Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau, MAS clothing factories in the free trade zones (FTZ) as well as the Nugegoda Supermarket and Fort Railway Station on World AIDS Day 2011.
