Business Coach (Income Generating Activities (IGA) Advisor PRF 8327)

Contribution to Strategy:

SIM Burkina Faso seeks to respond to human need as part of its vision. HOPE for AIDS Burkina Faso (Espoir Face au SIDA) is a grassroots program that seeks to bring greater understanding of HIV/AIDS and appropriate involvement of the church in the fight against HIV/AIDS. It is run by the local church with the assistance of SIM. The program seeks to educate about HIV/AIDS in order to prevent further increase in infections and helps the church to respond to and care for those living with HIV. Due to continuous stigmatization of those infected by the virus, many lose their jobs and have a hard time finding sources of income. Income generating activities (IGAs) are necessary to help improve the lives of those infected and affected by HIV. Training and implementation of IGA programs are necessary to decrease financial dependency on outside funding.

Ministry: DH- HIV/AIDS

 

Responsibilities: The IGA Advisor will train local AIDS committee members/leaders in the 18 church regions of Eastern Burkina on the conception, implementation, and evaluation of IGAs for persons infected or affected by HIV and AIDS. Close collaboration with the HOPE for AIDS Coordination Team is expected and the position reports directly to the Program Coordinator. It is essential that the training is shaped in such a way that it promotes self-sufficiency and a decreased dependency on outside funding.

Other Ministry Possibilities: Youth ministry/discipleship, ESL, IT support.
