Ikageng Itireleng AIDS Ministry Volunteer Information
Volunteers form an invaluable core of the Ikageng Itireleng Aids Ministry. There is no fixed time commitments, or schedules, rather we encourage and appreciated any help you are able to give. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and a loving heart. Volunteers assist with visiting and spending time with the children, helping with the home-based care programme, assisting with office administration, accompanying children on fun days, helping to arrange and organise fun days and assisting in fundraising initiatives.
Due to the rapid growth of Ikageng, assistance to help with the day-to-day running of the office business has become a rapidly growing necessity. Skills that would be required include the sending of e-mails, making phone calls, filing of documents and assisting with general office administration.
These are specifically skilled people Ikageng Itireleng requires. Children who have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS and have lost parents need to be able to have a social support structure that ensures their emotional needs are met. Various elements need to be instituted and run by people who have the relevant training, knowledge and commitment. Counseling for the children is a priority. Caregivers are essential in maintaining children emotional needs, continuing care for the children, reinforcing a sense of community and integrating them into the community, educating the children on HIV/AIDS which dispels stigma and mistreatment. Social helpers are needed for their particular skills in dealing with social problems such as HIV/AIDS and orphaned children.
