Projects in Botswana
Volunteers support our government partners in the national response to Botswana's HIV/AIDS epidemic working in civil society, health facilities, and local government offices.
In health clinics and district health management teams, volunteers aim to strengthen community outreach related to HIV prevention and services to the most vulnerable and assist in data collection, analysis and supply chain management.
Volunteers working in civil society build organizational capacity in community based organizations, especially those working to address the needs of youth, orphans, and vulnerable children.
In local government offices, they assist public officers in the coordination of district-wide activities related to HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment. Additionally, volunteers provide support in offices providing public services to orphans and vulnerable children.
Volunteers work in schools to support guidance counselors and teachers in implementing a leadership and life skills decision-making curriculum that focuses on fighting against the spread of HIV/AIDS. Volunteers teach classes in HIV prevention and train teachers in creating safe educational environments.
President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief
Volunteers work with communities across Botswana to achieve an HIV-free generation. They help build capacity within their communities by working in schools, non-governmental organizations, health clinics, and district offices.
