Through the Church Mobilisation Programme, the Jubilee Centre works with 80 churches in four economically poor communities, mobilising the leaders and congregations to enhance their response to HIV/AIDS. They provide volunteer caregivers from their congregations and nutritional support to patients and families, as well as education and support for orphans and vulnerable children in their communities.

The Jubilee Centre also run HIV/AIDS Youth Action Clubs, which encourages discussion around HIV prevention and care within the group.

  • Working with young people through self-discovery workshops.
  • Supporting the Child Feeding Programme.
  • Visiting and praying with vulnerable adults.
  • Teaching and leading activities at local schools.

What can you bring?

Groups can bring energy, passion and commitment to their work with our partners.
