In recent times, the medication available for HIV sufferers has increased greatly, but these advances rarely reach those in most need in Kenya. Agape Volunteers works with local projects which help to combat this issue, and we need volunteers to help with this most valuable volunteering work.
Agape's HIV volunteers in Kenya work in local clinics and community projects performing testing, counselling patients, and helping HIV education programs. This work brings some obvious challenges, but Agape is also proud to provide our volunteers with the opportunity to participate in the internationally recognised HIV Testing and Counselling (HTC) course. The HTC provides its participants with the required knowledge to ensure that testing is carried out safely and effectively, whilst also providing training in counselling and community awareness.
This program is popular with those who wish to help out in a genuinely effective volunteer program whilst learning valuable skills themselves.
- Receive a training qualification to ensure safe and effective practice.
- Work with those in genuine need.
We're proud that Agape's work in Kenya has already had an enormous impact on the local communities we work with, and you can be a great help in continuing this good work. As an HIV volunteer in Kenya you will have a really positive impact on people living with HIV, as well as communities trying to recover from the disease. But the best thing about volunteering? You get to come and see first-hand the impact you can make!
