|Description du stage :||
The intern will be working with SCC to expand on a multi-faceted
strategy related to cooperatives,HIV/AIDS and Gender. SCC's current program has
examined the impacts of HIV/AIDS on agricultural systems, farmers, households,
women, children, productivity, economics and on cooperatives; HIV/AIDS care,
mitigation and prevention strategies. The effects of the pandemic have a
heavily negative impact in all sectors in which SCC operates, especially in
agriculture. All SCC supported initiatives include HIV/AIDS and Gender
information, education and communication, as well as activities for HIV
prevention and AIDS mitigation among SCC target groups. A part from this
overall approach, SCC is also supporting special focus initiatives.
In Canada the intern will attend a pre-departure orientation.
Evaluation and monitoring of current projects:
- Evaluate the impact of current project's work on behaviour change in mitigating the impacts of HIV/AIDS. First, use Outcome Mapping, which is cutting edge for measuring behaviour change outcomes of development projects. Second, the evaluation would also serve to measure the impacts of current Community Based Organizations and NGOs working indirectly with cooperatives.
- Building on the excellent work of the past interns for the HIV/AIDS and Gender work of the SCC, this work requires follow up research and information dissemination. Develop further strategies for the dissemination of directories and analyses and have direct visits with the primary cooperatives mentioned in the documents to see if they have followed up on their 'to-do' list for HIV/AIDS and Gender interventions.
|Organisation d'accueil :||Swedish Co-operative Centre|
|Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil :||The Swedish Cooperative Centre, SCC, was created by the Swedish Cooperative movement in 1958 in order to contribute to improved living conditions of poor women and men in developing countries, through an effort of mutual cooperation and collaboration. The organisation's vision is a world free from poverty and injustice.
The primary target group for SCC is poor women and men mainly in rural areas, who are members or potential members of democratic organisations or informal groups working for common goals. The extremely poor generally lack opportunities and organisation. Therefore SCC works in partnership, supporting mobilisation and development of member-based organisations with the aim of indirectly and with a long-term perspective improving the lives of the poor.
Information and communication are equally important tools to achieve long-term and sustainable development. For this reason, SCC also works to mould public opinion and gain public support for people based development.
