Find out more about First Aid Africa & how you can get involved

Your chance to get involved in a great Student Volunteering project which could include you going to Africa to teach vital first aid skills! 

 
STUDENT LEADERSHIP
First Aid Africa began as a student society. In 2011 the project was awarded “Student-Led Volunteering Project of the year” by the Birmingham City University Student Union. With support from the National Union of Students, the charity has grown to develop student volunteers, working across 10 Universities as they develop their skills in First Aid & international development in the UK and sub-Saharan Africa.
 
THE PROBLEM
Each year, injuries kills more people than HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis COMBINED. We believe that nobody should die due to lack of access to basic emergency first aid. Student volunteers are trained by the charity to enable them to participate in supported international volunteering placements training pre-identified groups in First Aid.
 
PRESENTATION
December’s presentation aims to introduce the idea of international development as a career path for students, while acknowledging the challenges and opportunities provided by international volunteering.
