Ikamva has two new volunteers from a Global Exchange Program run by the British Council. Francisco Armenta is a young graphic designer that works with a HIV testing agency and uses media to inform the public about HIV and AIDS. Francisco Armenta is currently one of the youngest HIV testers/counselors in Los Angeles, California. He will be helping the young adults of IkamvaYouth KZN with English, Computer Literacy, and STD’s and HIV awareness.

The second volunteer is from right here in Durban, South Africa Ayanda Chamane. She is a performing artist focused on poetry. She started professionally reciting poetry in 2006. Ayanda performed all around Durban in high schools, local radio stations, The Department of Arts and Culture, and The Centre of creative Arts at the University of KwaZulu Natal. Currently she helps organize poetry shows for the BAT Centre every 3rd Saturday of the month, where she invites poets from all around the country.

 These two volunteers are extremely excited to work with the young adults in the IkamvaYouth program.
