AIDSPortal had an exhibition booth (shared with the Kenya AIDS NGOs Consortium) in the Global Village, which ended up being rather conveniently and strategically located to the ‘Community Café’. The café provided a.) free coffee and chocolate and b.) the opportunity for us to lure people to our booth who were queuing for free coffee and chocolate.
Needless to say the booth had a lot traffic and it served a good opportunity to highlight:
- the new regional website we’re just about ready to launch www.hivsouthernafrica.info (in conjunction with SAfAIDS, AIDS Alliance, Soul City, UNAIDS, USAID and others)
- the new regional Eastern Africa site coming soon www.hivalert.net (in partnership with EANNASO)
- the re-launch of AIDSPortal www.aidsportal.org. Coming very soon!
People who dropped by were also able to sign up to email alerts for funding and employment opportunities (if you’re interested in doing the same please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org).
