What is a CABSA representative?
CABSA has people who ‘represent’ the organisation in many different ways; Staff, Board and Management Committee members, Facilitators etc. A special group within the orgaisation is the people we call ‘representatives’.
One of the ways in which CABSA, a small organisation with limited resources, expands our capacity is through part time and ad hoc agreements with CABSA Representatives. CABSA representatives are trained Churches, Channels of Hope facilitators who share CABSA’s dream of caring Christian communities, ministering reconciliation and hope in a world with HIV and commit to assist the organisation in various ways.These are not CABSA employees, but volunteers or people with whom we ‘contract’ for a few hours a month.
A CABSA regional representative is a member of the CABSA mentoring team who is specifically allocated to build and maintain relationships with a group of facilitators from a specific region. Lead trainers of the CABSA Churches, Channels of Hope programme represents CABSA in a special way during training. All CABSA representatives may also from time to time represent CABSA at events and in initial discussions with other organisations and networks.
CABSA regional representatives will contact trained facilitators in the area they represent and will offer them support. You are also welcome to contact your regional representative if you need any support, encouragement, prayer or other guidance.
What if there is no CABSA representative in the province or region I stay?
We aim to identify a CABSA representative for all the regions in Africa where there is a cluster of trained facilitators. However, this is not always possible. If you need any assistance or support you are most welcome to contact Aneleh Fourie-Le Roux, the mentor coordinator, with your requests and needs.
