At Re-Action! we believe that workplace wellbeing programmes not only have a positive impact on the company and its employees, but have an even further reaching impact on collective happiness which leads to more peaceful, sustainable and harmonious workplace communities, countries and the world. Each evening workers return to their homes in their communities and so workplaces are intimately linked to houses and homes.
This programme focusses on the nine human needs and their satisfiers that form the foundation for Human Scale Development within communities. The process identifies `wealth’ and `poverty’ according to how fundamental human needs are met in a given community.
To us, a successful partnership means sharing a vision that all stakeholders understand in order for them to embrace their roles. We work through compliance, coordination and collaboration to solve complex issues transparently and proactively.
Abanqobi (isiZulu: the conquerors), is an offspring of Re-Action’s programme in Household Economic Strengthening and Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC). An estimated 13.4 million children and adolescents (0-17 years) worldwide had lost one or both parents to AIDS as of 2015. More than 80% of these children (10.9 million) live in Sub-Saharan Africa. In some countries which are extensively affected by the epidemic, a large percentage of all orphaned children – for example 74% in Zimbabwe, and 63% in South Africa – are orphaned due to AIDS.
Voices of Change was funded by President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) between 2011 and 2016. It provided comprehensive mobile outreach services to sex workers with a combination prevention health package that included peer education, HIV testing services (HTS) and care and treatment. In addition, the programme provided patients with sexual and reproductive health services i.e. contraception, STI treatment, cervical cancer screening as well as information, education and communication materials, and sustainable linkage to care. Since the programme’s inception, more than 20 000 sex workers have been reached through mobile clinics. These are equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment, as well as trained and clinically certified staff.
The SAPAM programme supported the Southern African Development Community (SADC) through implementation of Pharmaceutical Business Plan, starting in 2009.
