Do you want to help us in the fight against HIV

Who are we?
The Project supports HIV prevention and sexual health promotion with Sub-Saharan African Migrants (SAM) in Flanders. Together with the Sub-Saharan African communities and their leaders we develop, implement and evaluate targeted HIV prevention campaigns. We also support sub-Saharan African people living with HIV.

Volunteers are an important resource for our prevention work. Your contribution can mean a lot in the fight against HIV/AIDS. As a volunteer you can contact our target audience in a much more informal way

If one or more of following statements applies to you, do not hesitate to contact us:
Do you have good contacts with the African communities?
Do you have spare time on weekends and after work?
Are you socially committed?
Do you like talking to people?
Do you have confidence to talk to people about HIV prevention?
Do you have some computer knowledge?
Are you eager to learn new things?
Are you discrete and can you deal with confidential information?

Activities of our volunteers
Depending on your talents and preferences, you can be involved in one or more of following activities:

You support actively our HIV prevention and sexual health promotion activities with sub-Saharan African communities in Flanders.
You can be active in the areas of Antwerp, Leuven, Ghent, Mechelen, Oostende…

You can be involved in “outreach” activities (festivals, festivals of the African communities, socio-cultural events) where you help with handing out prevention material.

You maintain contacts with the leaders of several African organizations, and with other volunteers. You visit places where many Africans come together to promote sexual health and distribute HIV prevention materials (cafes, churches, hairdressers, …)

You help with the mobilisation of the sub-Saharan community in order to offer HIV tests.

Volunteers Fee
We reimburse possible transportation – and catering cost.
We offer a volunteer fee of maximum 30 euro per day according to the rules of the Belgian volunteer regulations.
