SHARC 2009: How YOU can get involved…

n791660013_4396420_1214SHARC is planning big things for ’09…here are some of the things that YOU can get involved in:

1. Become a PEER EDUCATOR:

Educating people about safe sex and changing mindsets about HIV / Aids is some of the most important work that SHARC does. To qualify as a Peer Educator, you will need to attend fortnightly sessions for the first half of the year, after which you will hold workshops in schools in Grahamstown and for first years during O-week. The work is highly rewarding and not too demanding, even if you have a busy schedule. If you’re interested, contact Claire Marais: g05m1098@campus.ru.ac.za

2. Get involved in our COMMUNITY OUTREACH programme:

SHARC’s Community Outreach portfolio is planning a whole array of activities for this year. In particular, SHARC works with children affected or infected with HIV, and this year are planning to organise a game drive, set up a tutoring system and start an aerobics class for the kids! SHARC also works closely with local NGO’s such as the Raphael and Jabez Centres. If this is the kind of work you think you’d be interested in, get hold of Denel Honeyball – g07h6048@campus.ru.ac.za or Lisa Nel – g07n1446@campus.ru.ac.za

3. Support our TESTING DRIVES:

SHARC organises regular testing drives on campus to encourage students to know their status. If you’d like to volunteer to help out, contact Phindile Shezi – g08s3920@campus.ru.ac.za

4. Help out with HIV / Aids Awareness Week and other events:

We’ll send out regular emails to keep you up to date with any events we’re organising. In addition to HIV / Aids awareness week, SHARC organises awareness campaigns, concerts, auctions, film evenings, plays, lectures, discussion forums and much more..Volunteers are always appreciated! Get hold of Ithuteng Mashabela – g08m3441@campus.ru.ac.za for more information on how you can help.

And finally, SPREAD THE WORD, NOT THE VIRUS: 

Tell your friends about what SHARC does, and encourage them to get involved. Just as importantly, try and work towards destigmatising the disease and encouraging safe sexual practices in your every day life. If we all work towards building a culture of tolerance and understanding, we can truly make a difference! 🙂
