Jump to last reply

Campaign KMO outreach will run for two weeks by the combined volunteers as part of a month long KMO campaign by VPWA and it grass root partners through out the following countries: Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, & Liberia.

Campaign KMO will start in Ghana with Volunteers from all over the world, including professionals from all fields, students etc. Volunteers will receive a training, conducted by VPWA’s Executive Director, to facilitate cultural understanding and to teach Volunteers how to address each community i.e. community customs, habits, etc. Volunteers will then be divided into two groups (Volunteer Group A & Group B). A Volunteer Team Leader will be assigned for each group of volunteers.

Between 20th August 2009 and September 3rd 2009, Volunteer Group A will travel to the countries east of Ghana i.e. Togo, Benin and Nigeria. Volunteer Group B will travel to the countries West of Ghana i.e. Ivory Coast and Liberia. VPWA partner organizations in these countries, will be awaiting the arrival of VPWA volunteer groups to facilitate any community needs. Each group will:

Conduct community workshops on Malaria by disseminating people-friendly statistical information on the spread of Malaria and providing preventative measures to prevent being infected by the disease
