Social Media Help
The Global Acupuncture Project
The Global Acupuncture Project (GAP) is seeking help in using the available social media outlets to make more people aware of GAP and the work we are doing, increase our credibility and trust, and increase exposure to potential donors. This should include an explanation of the issues/problems that GAP is addressing and help people to understand who we are and what we are doing. Why is this issue important? How is GAP helping to solve this issue? Among other items, it could include outcomes, case studies, etc. It could also include the following:
- Project updates
- Video messages from leadership, staff, or community members
- Articles/posts written by volunteers and participants
- Meet the staff/volunteer
- Donor Acknowledgement
- Overviews of all that GAP has achieved over the years
The individual in this volunteer position would set up systems for using the social media, including how to best integrate these into our website, and help GAP staff understand how to update these into the future.
About The Global Acupuncture Project
113 Summit Avenue, Brookline, MA 02446, US
The mission of The Global Acupuncture Project (GAP) is to partner with and train local healthcare providers in countries where health care is limited and/or in accessible to use simple and effective acupuncture techniques to help manage common symptoms and to improve the quality of life of individuals affected by HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, and other debilitating conditions.
The Global Acupuncture Project (GAP) trains health care providers in Mexico and in African countries to be able to use simple, effective acupuncture protocols to address the symptoms of HIV/AIDS, malaria, and TB, as well as other common conditions. The treatments can also address the unwanted side effects of otherwise helpful medications. Not a substitute for conventional medicine, the acupuncture works with it to reduce pain and suffering, improve quality of life, and help to instill a greater sense of hope. At the core of the trainings are two Training Manuals, which help to empower the Trainees to provide better care to their own people.
