Medical internship placements are based at health posts or hospitals that are either government run or managed by the local community in rural and urban areas. Examples of services are medical, dental and nursing care. Interns conduct orientation in hygiene, sanitation, other health topics and checking on patients. A medical or nursing background is recommended but not required.

The teaching internship program involves teaching in primary and secondary schools the English language and other school subjects with an emphasis on literacy and cross-curriculum learning. Interns not only teach academic subjects but organize creative activities as well as lend their experiences and enthusiasm to extra-curricular activities. In many developing communities, resources are seriously lacking. Your efforts can make a huge difference in the lives of the school children.

Orphanage interns help provide daily care and emotional support for those less fortunate children without parents through hands-on activities such as education, counseling, nutrition, hygiene, recreation, sports and entertainment. Poverty and a very low standard of living sadly result in cases where children are left orphaned and uncared for. You can make a difference to these special children.
