About

At The Sankofa Center, we empower people to change lives and foster healthy behaviors to prevent, detect, and treat HIV/AIDS. We utilize traditional African dance and drama fused with health information to educate people of all ages in Ghana. We are committed to providing free counseling, rapid HIV/AIDS testing and connecting people with HIV/AIDS to local medical resources. We value equipping the next generation with tools to wipe out HIV/AIDS with a compassionate and open-minded ethos. Since 2004, we have educated 35,000 students about HIV prevention, 50,000 community members on HIV transmission, and have provided over 4,000 individuals with free rapid HIV testing and links to resources.

You can help our HIV/AIDS-prevention programs in Ghana without leaving the Bay Area. Our education, HIV testing, and counseling services are supported in two ways: by a team of international volunteers who travel to Ghana, and by stores that carry our fair trade product line. In this position, you would research and make connections with schools and businesses that might promote our volunteer program and/or carry our products. The number of volunteers and partnering stores that we can recruit makes a direct impact on the number of people we can reach in Ghana.

This volunteer position is several hours a week and can be done at our Sunnyvale office or virtually.
