KUFUNANA was created as a community based organization whose the main purpose is to support people living with HIV/AIDS and affected people, especially children in their daily activities. The organization was born in Beira, central province of Sofala, in Mozambique. It has delegations in Maputo and some other parts of the country. The particular tasks which the volunteer will undertake will need to be defined by AJUDE, the KUFUNANA network organisation and the member association in line with the volunteers abilities and preferences, before the arrival of the volunteer in Mozambique. With no or limited Portuguese the volunteer could undertake the following tasks: Accompanying activists on home and community visits; activities with children; self-help meetings. (These providegood learning experiences for the volunteer but it is difficult to participate actively). Kindergarten for teaching kids with less privileges and others in the community; Also teaching in local schools with extracurricular activities like sports, drawing and other. With the ability to communicate in Portuguese at a reasonable level the volunteer would be able to undertake any of the activities listed in the Activities of the projects section, depending on the organisations needs at the time. Depending on the needs of the organisations, it may be necessary/possible for the volunteer to work with an organisation for a set period of time and then move to another organisation (which could be in another area of the country). The volunteers programme and any changes of association will need to be coordinated by AJUDE and KUFUNANA network organisation and the member associations. Working hours: Monday to Friday, maximum: 8 hours per day.
We expect the volunteer to be: Willing to work with people who are HIV-positive; Be flexible and adaptable to a new culture and different working habits; The ability to communicate verbally in Portuguese greatly increases the number of tasks that the volunteer would be able to undertake. If the volunteer does not have Portuguese when they start working on the project they will have limited possibilities until their Portuguese improves (these possibilities are set out in the volunteer tasks section); Being sensitive to the life conditions and difficulties (vulnerability) of the association members and activists, and the fact that their work is voluntary; Be creative and able to initiate new activities (one-off and ongoing); Patience and ability to deal with frustrations and difficult situations; Education and/or experience in particular fields (e.g. HIV/AIDS, medicine, education, community work, administration, organisational development, training, computers, website development, vocational skills such as agriculture, carpentry, sewing etc, psychology or counselling, work with NGOs, awareness-raising work, and fundraising) would give the volunteer the chance to undertake activities in related areas of the work of the associations.
