I am Thembekile Hlubi,I work for Muthande society for the aged. The organisation is based in Durban in the KZN Province in South Africa. Our work involve a lot of different programmes including HIV/AIDS and older people. We give them information about the disease, train them on how to better care, prevent and limit infections.
We have trained older people to be peer educators and counsellors and we’ve found that this is the best practise because it is much better to get new information from your peers.In addition to caring the organisation does a lot developmental work i.e Skills development and skills transfer, Literacy training which is ABET driven, creating awareness on alzheimers, capacity building on different health, rights and social security programmes.
