Teneille – Biography

August 10, 2011

My name is Teneille Dzuba and I have recently completed a Bachelor of Arts with a major in International Development Studies at the University of Regina. I have always been interested in the issues and processes affecting developing countries and it has always been my dream to travel to Africa. In 2009, I had the opportunity to volunteer with a small public health organization in Uganda, providing outreach and education on a number of health issues in the village in which I lived. I learned a great deal through this experience, and when it was over, could not wait to do more traveling and volunteering. I am thrilled to now have the opportunity to work in Botswana and to learn more about this country’s unique development story.

During my placement, I will be working as a Youth Program Assistant with the Centre for Youth of Hope (CEYOHO) in Gaborone. CEYOHO is an NGO that primarily targets youth living with HIV and AIDS. The organization offers a number of programs and services aimed at educating young people on prevention and how to live positively with HIV and AIDS, while also providing care and support to those living with HIV/AIDS. I chose this position because I enjoy teaching and working with youth, and I hope to learn more about public health in Botswana and the perceptions of young people towards HIV/AIDS. I am excited to take a hands-on role in implementing CEYOHO’s programs and can’t wait to begin this next adventure!
