Be part of the team that halts the HIV/AIDS virus in its tracks! In Kenya, the rate of the HIV/AIDS infection continues unabated. Due to this deadly disease, many families have been plunged into poverty as they lose their sole breadwinners. There have been campaigns to stop the rate of infection but many have been unsuccessful. New Hope works with the grassroots communities that are actively initiating programs that are creating awareness halting the spread of the disease. With your help, these organizations can reach out to more people through awareness and prevention campaigns. Volunteer in Kenya, and be part of the team that contributes to the fight against the virus. While you’re there, take the opportunity to explore the renowned wildlife safaris or hike Mt Kilimanjaro!
Do you want to join the fight against HIV/AIDS in Kenya? Do you want to make a different in the face of healthcare in rural areas of Africa?
Every year, AIDS claims the lives of thousands of Kenyan children and adults. It is estimated that about 900,000 Kenyans are infected with HIV/AIDS, and that number is expanding rapidly. Real grassroots efforts are needed to prevent more human disaster in this millennium. In collaboration with local groups, Boundless Love has established a HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness project in Kenya seeking to promote awareness among the local communities.
Ideally, volunteers in this volunteering in HIV/AIDS prevention in Kenya program will be trained together with the local experts for a period of one week. For the following weeks, volunteers and local experts will engage in training, education, and demonstration activities to increase HIV/AIDS awareness in local Kenyan communities. This HIV/AIDS awareness in Kenya opportunity is very challenging and participants should be prepared to learn and train others, as this project goes forward.
