SPW Tanzania runs two volunteer programmes in the Southern Highlands, the Community Resource Programme (CRP), based in Primary Schools and rural communities, and the School Health Education Programme (SHEP), based in Secondary Schools. The volunteers are mainly Tanzanian form 6 leavers. It is the enthusiasm and dedication of these volunteers that makes these programmes successful.
SPW has recently launched a new programme, the ex-volunteer network. This uses the experience and skills of former volunteers who are now students at the University of Dar es Salaam. The ex-volunteers raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and other reproductive health issues through festivals, radio shows and this website. This is aimed mainly at University students but also at other young people in Dar es Salaam and the rest of Tanzania. The ex-volunteers also improve the health services for students, including counselling services and making sure that condoms are available.
The ex-volunteer network, including this website, is supported by the Rapid Funding Envelope for HIV/AIDS (RFE). The Network is known as Afya Bomba.
