Join Our Team
The backbone of HENU’s activities has been an excellent team of volunteers who are trained and supported by the HENU Volunteer manual in carrying out their roles in the communities they serve. Our volunteers are empathic and supportive of the older persons and OVCs we support. Without our volunteers activities including blood pressure checks, outreach activities, HIV testing and counseling facilities, facilitation of older persons group activities, research among others would be at a stale mate. We are indeed grateful to our dedicated staff and call for more to join us.
We reach out to the older persons, their families and communities. Many of the vulnerable older persons are poor and yet caretakers of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs), others are isolated and neglected. We do provide to them social, emotional support and some receive material and financial assistance.
We believe that Partnership play a role in the struggle to deliver a more equitable and just world, it is a key principle of our work and we welcome the opportunity to work with others across the world to deliver impact for older persons, Orphan Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs), people affected by and living with HIV.
We thank our partners whose contributions have helped Health Nest Uganda and we engage companies, institutions and industry partners in exciting ways to work together with Us in the fight Poverty, Sigma, Hunger among Older persons, their carers, OVCs and people affected with HIV
Give, Fundraise, Advocate.
You are just a click away to changing the lives of the older persons, OVCs and people with and those living with HIV.
