YAAPHA

Health and Hygiene Assistance

NGO | YAAPHA

YAAPHA needs volunteers to help us in the daily activities in our various projects regarding HIV/AIDS. This includes especially educational work.

YAAPHA exists in order to minimize transmission and impact of HIV/AIDS through capacity building, advocacy, information, education and support.

A health and hygiene assistance volunteer at this placement is required to help out with raising awareness about the causes, effects and prevention of HIV/AIDS and the transmission and treatment of HIV/AIDS. 

Health and hygiene assistance volunteers will assist with the education, as well as the care of youth who are affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic through "home based care" and conducting public youth group educational sessions. A health and hygiene assistance volunteer is expected to provide support for the most vulnerable children (MVC) who have been affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic through the organization's foster parent programs, sponsorship for schools, counselling, tutoring and assisting to obtain monetary funds for basic needs.

Health and hygiene assistance volunteers may be asked to assist in the organization's endeavor to educate citizens on important issues such as human rights and gender based violence. YAAPHA also offers legal counselling for people experiencing human rights violations.

A health and hygiene assistance volunteer does not need to have had previous experience related to this illness but they must have good communication skills and a sincere desire to help in the fight against AIDS. Volunteers should have previously researched and educated themselves in respect to the different aspects of the illness so that they can make a meaningful contribution during their volunteering commitment at this placement. Health and hygiene assistance volunteers must be mature individuals who have the emotional fortitude to be able to work in sometimes stressful situations and project a positive attitude.

Activity Description for this project are as follows:
1. Counselling
Counselling is one of the tasks that a health and hygiene assistance volunteer would be expected to participate in with the assistance of staff. Therefore, all volunteers for this placement must have educated themselves in regards to all aspects of HIV/AIDS. This should include knowledge about current medications and treatments available.

2. Outreach Program
A health and hygiene assistance volunteer may be asked to assist in the outreach work, where the organizational staff with a volunteer would conduct trips to the streets and schools, reaching out to youth who are infected and/or who are at risk of being infected with HIV/AIDS.

3. Sports & Events
A health and hygiene assistance volunteer would be required to help in organizing sports and events for the youth groups that they work with. This is an important endeavor as it provides for these young people an enjoyable outlet to their often stressful situations.

4. Document of Projects
After a HIV/AIDS project has been completed (or perhaps during the said project) the health and hygiene assistace volunteer may be asked to assist the local staff in all necessary documentation. The data is filed in the organization's office for future reference, if or when required.
