Rescue Widows, Elderly, Youth and Orphans with AIDS (RWEYOWA) needs public volunteers to help with HIV/AIDS sensitization/education interventions in our local schools, with the aim of promoting knowledge of HIV/AIDS among the young school going communities.
Volunteers' activities may include but not limited to; preparing HIV/AIDS education session materials and conducting discussion groups to educate the young school going communities about HIV/AIDS. The general curriculum covers topics like Life skills, Puberty, Virginity, Healthy living, HIV transmission scenerios, STDs, Pregnancy, ABC (Abstinence, Being faithful and Condom use) method, HIV/AIDS Stigma, etc.
In addition to HIV/AIDS education, volunteers are also free to get involved in any of our organization projects including; community outreach, HIV counseling and testing, children immunization, general community/public health education, orphan support activities, fundraising, among others. Team-work is highly emphasized at RWEYOWA, and international volunteers work in close collaboration with our local staff/volunteers. Both short and long term volunteers are welcome.
A certificate of volunteering is offered at the end of the volunteer period as a token of appreciation for the voluntary service offered to the organization and community.
