Rationale

Prevention is better than cure; at the center of which is the awareness of disease and its prevention. The key to a healthy society is an informed society, sadly as much as [insert statistic] of annual deaths in Africa can be prevented by adequate dissemination of health information.

Solution

The key to successful dissemination of health information is getting everyone involved; giving people that truly care about other people’s health a platform on which they can help disseminate health information and supplies. This platform accommodates and optimizes this stock of caring people to save lives that would otherwise be lost due to lack of information and health supplies.

Target

The primary targets are rural areas and shanty compounds, secondary targets being schools and churches found in urban areas.

Volunteer Eligibility

The only requirement is that a volunteer is 18 years and older at the time they take part in a project.

Mechanics

Step 1:  The Wesbr Foundation identifies a health need in the community and sets up the necessary structures such as: venue, funding – if needed, equipment, acquires permissions and consents;

Step 2:  The Wesber Foundation creates an advert for a health awareness opportunity on wesbrfoundation.org or other platform that can be verified on wesbrfoundation.org;

Step 3:  Volunteers fill out the Wesbr Foundation Volunteer form on wesbrfoundation.org or hardcopy;

Step 4:  The Wesbr Foundation evaluates the applications and selects suitable candidates for the project;

Step 5:  The Wesbr Foundation facilitates a workshop in which volunteers undergo short term training by experts in the fields under focus; and

Step 6:  Volunteers begin the program.

Funding

The projects are principally crowd funded but may apply for project specific grants. Fund raising campaigns are initiated when projects are approved, unsolicited funds are nonetheless welcome and will strictly sit on the health awareness account until a project is approved.
