Education:an effective weapon against HIV

Organized by: BJ Henderson

THE STORY:

As you may know, I will be traveling to Tanzania to participate on an HIV/ AIDS Prevention Education Program next March with Global Service Corps (GSC), project of Earth Island Institute.Going to Africa has been a dream of mine, and I am thrilled to be crossing this off my bucket list in such a way that I will be able to experience East African culture and have the opportunity to do something to make a difference in the lives of others.
Because Global Corps is a non-profit organization, I have been encouraged to help raise money to contribute to its support. In return, Global Service Corps/Earth Island Institute will offset my participation fee with funds I raise for them. This fee includes in-country training and orientation, project administration and oversight, visa and work permit, travel and accident insurance, meals and accommodations, and local transportation. All donations made on my behalf may be 100% tax deductible.

Global Service Corps is an international volunteer service-learning and community development organization that taps into the talents and generosity of its volunteer participants, staff, partners and advisors, both in the developed and developing world. GSC’s programs are grounded in a philosophy that the personal lives and activities of people around the world are increasingly intertwined. It is important that we understand the interrelatedness of our individual actions and the effect they have on health, social well-being, and environmental stability worldwide. We are all responsible for the health of the world.
Through GSC’s programs, volunteers and students gain valuable, hands-on, field work experience working alongside development and community professionals on projects that address issues of International Health, HIV/AIDS Prevention, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security, and Orphan Care. Other cultural engagement and community service projects include Community Development, Buddhist Immersion and Teaching English. Serving as assistant trainers and teachers on community development projects gives participants unique insight and understanding of international development and cross-cultural issues (or awareness). Always working with the community in mind, GSC community development projects are based on the needs of the people Global Service Corps serves, making the results long-lasting and sustainable.
Thank you for your support!
Much love,
BJ
