I am actually very thrilled and overwhelmed by the way I was welcomed to the organization. I liked the structure and the responsibilities I undertook as their volunteer. I gave them all expertise knowledge and went right in the interior while visiting support groups and HIV/AIDS patients. Established a follow up tool to assist them to track over 30 support groups of more than 7,000 members they are supporting. It was quite interesting and we are currently working on a five year strategic plan for fundraising for the project!! Also worked on bamboo propagation project we had to prepare for bamboo seedlings and then distributing to neighboring farmers along the River Khalaba for protection of the river bank that is so much eroded. We also trained groups on the use of bamboo as a fuel instead of cutting down trees.
What would you improve about this program?
1. Getting more interns and volunteers to support
2. Needs lots of capacity building
3. Networking and marketing
