This project is part of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) International Aboriginal Youth Internships (IAYI) initiative. The internships focus on increasing the awareness, engagement, and participation of Aboriginal youth in international development, while providing them with opportunities to expand their employment skills. The IAYI initiative is funded through DFATD’s Global Citizens Program. The project provides internships to 20 Aboriginal interns with overseas internships in four countries. Eight interns are placed in Tanzania with the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network, two interns in Uganda with the CAP/AIDS Uganda, four interns in Malawi with the Museums of Malawi, and six interns in South Africa with the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Interns offer a variety of culturally-specific HIV/AIDS prevention, and care and support services that focus on the needs of local populations. This includes HIV/AIDS related public awareness-raising, outreach, resource mobilization, anti HIV stigma and discrimination initiatives, documentation and research support, and social media analysis.
