In Tanzania, accompany Global Volunteers’ local RCP staff on home visits which focus on women and children’s health, nutrition, preventative healthcare and proactive hygiene. Help parents apply the new knowledge they learn at parents’ workshops. Demonstrate the use of appropriate technologies, e.g., household handwashing stations, garden boxes and chicken coops. Offer support and encouragement so parents can make the behavioral changes necessary to apply their new knowledge and adopt appropriate technologies that enrich their lives. Show parents how to communicate with and stimulate their infants and toddlers. Assist our staff by measuring infants and toddlers head circumference, length/height, and weight. In Peru, visit “solares,” tiny shanty towns in the middles of the wealthy Miraflores district.
