Funding

eMPathy Trust Southern Africa is registered as a Non Profit Organisation (092-132-NPO). Your support will help:

  • reduce HIV incidence among the youth
  • increase the capacity of teachers, peer educators, home based carers to become agents of change in their communities
  • those who are already living with HIV/AIDS to live with dignity and respect
  • create schools and/or communities, which serve as places of care and support, to respond appropriately to the range of psychosocial issues related to and exacerbated by HIV/AIDS

Our materials and methods give key role players the practical skills, critical insights, sensitivity and confidence they require in order to make a significant difference in the lives of those who are infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Your support will help to:

  • implement, sustain and monitor  eMpathy Trust ‘s in-service Comprehensive HIV/AIDS training programmes for teachers in schools and ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge, skills, values and confidence to implement effective HIV/AIDs education in their classrooms and school communities
  • provide pre- service training through eMPathy Trust’s Comprehensive HIV/AIDS training programmes at tertiary level, i.e. universities  and technikons
  • design and implement eMPathy training programmes for community based, nongovernmental and governmental organisations, which work with children and youth, so that they can provide effective HIV/AIDS education, treatment, care and support for these children.
  • provide training for HIV/AIDS in the workplace in the form of programmes for the corporate sector that concentrate on issues such as disclosure and addressing stigma as a barrier to support
  • develop new training programmes and materials for specific target groups. eMPathy Trust is currently developing a training programme for peer educators, for example.
  • provide additional support to a particular project or initiative which you already support. eMPathy Trust can provide assistance and training for the HIV/AIDS education component of that project or organisation.
