Every year we hold our flagship Student Stop AIDS Campaign Tour where we bring the stories of those affected by the pandemic to students and decision makers across the country.

We are seeking 2 passionate speakers for next years tour (starting Jan-Feb 2013).

  • 1  International speaker from the Global South, and
  • 1 National speaker from UK/Ireland


This is the last week of recruitment so get those applications in!

In this voluntary role, you will tour the UK, to help bring to life the issues behind the HIV/AIDS pandemic by telling your personal story to students and decision-makers and inspiring them to take action. As well as telling your story at speaker events, the tour group will also take part and support student campaigning activities across the UK.

There are few things as powerful as hearing a young woman stand before you and talk quietly but steadily about the death of her parents from AIDS. Hearing about the stinging words of stigma from the person who had to endure them; or the injustice of treatment coverage from one lucky enough to receive it, brings the human reality of the AIDS pandemic very sharply into focus.

You will need to commit from around 21st January 2013 until 23rd February (subject to some change) – for approx 5 weeks, including a week of training on our campaigns and telling your story before the tour begins. After the training, the tour will visit around 20 Universities across the UK within a four week period, including meetings in Parliament with key UK decision makers.

This is an unpaid voluntary role however expenses incurred such as, travel, visas, food, basic accommodation and some phone costs will be covered throughout the tour.

Any questions please contact Kate on kates@restlessdevelopment.org

Deadline: Friday 7th September 2012.

We look forward to reading your applications!
