Global Service Corps, in partnership with SUNY-Albany, is proud to announce a new 9 Credit Summer and a new 15 Credit Fall Semester Integrated HIV/AIDS Education and Prevention & Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security Community Development Program. Designed for individuals with multiple interests, these programs allow students to participate in two GSC program areas providing a cross-sectoral response to community development in Tanzania. The focus of these service-learning experiences is for students to expand their own knowledge while at the same time helping to educate local community members in HIV/AIDS prevention and rural sustainable agriculture. Students will have the opportunity to become fully immersed in Tanzanian culture as they live, work, learn, and play among local Tanzanian families, staff, and students in both rural and urban settings. Participants will receive orientation in the language, culture, and history of the Tanzanian people as well as academic and hands-on technical training in the areas of HIV/AIDS and Food Security that will prepare them to assist in a variety of community development and training projects.

HIV/AIDS Prevention Education, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security

June 6 – August 6, 2011

Global Service Corps’ 9 week summer program gives students the opportunity to learn while serving some of Tanzania’s most vulnerable populations including widows, orphans, Maasai and other indigenous cultures. Students will spend their initial four weeks focusing on the GSC HIV/AIDS Prevention Program, engaging in projects such as the HIV/AIDS Peer Education and Life Skills Day Camp as well as assisting in additional community trainings and awareness activities. During week five, students will begin their training and participation in sustainable agriculture as part of the GSC Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security Program. Projects include community workshops, trainings, and hands-on field work in innovative food security techniques such as bio-intensive agriculture, water catchment, and food storage and preservation. Weeks six through nine will provide opportunities for integrated sustainable agriculture and HIV/AIDS prevention work, highlighting the interconnectedness of sustainable food production, income generation, and overall health and wellness.
