Projects in Botswana
Volunteers support our government partners in the national response to Botswana's HIV/AIDS epidemic working in civil society organizations, health facilities, and local government offices.
In health facilities and district health management offices, volunteers work with staff to strengthen outreach to priority populations for HIV prevention, systems for linking people to services, and capacity for monitoring and evaluation and supply chain management.
Volunteers working in civil society build organizational capacity in community based organizations, with a focus on those with a mandate to address the needs of youth, orphans and vulnerable children, and people living with HIV.
In local government offices, volunteers assist public officers in the coordination and implementation of district-wide activities focused on HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment, as well as services for orphans and vulnerable children.
Volunteers work in schools to support guidance and other teachers and staff in implementing a leadership and life skills decision-making curriculum that focuses on keeping students HIV negative. Volunteers co-teach classes, co-facilitate after-school clubs, strengthen teachers’ skills and work with staff to create a safe educational environment.
