The community development worker will be based in a village counselling and care centre. The centre has been well established in HIV counselling and testing and orphan care for two years. Mission Africa sees the need for the community to have more extensive services, and we are looking to expand the centre’s capacity. Some of the areas you could be involved in are:
- Working alongside indigenous staff to maintain excellent standards of Christian counselling, HIV care and orphan outreach at the centre
- Surveying the community to establish how we can better serve their needs; medically, socially and spiritually.
- Work alongside the church and partner agencies to establish new services
- Training local staff and volunteers to ensure long term sustainability
