This program allows you to learn about many different aspects of medical treatments and healthcare in Tanzania. The work will be varied and rewarding; you could be learning from local doctors in a large hospital one day and treating local Masai in a rural location the next.

High school students volunteering with Projects Abroad in Tanzania prepare for a day of observation at the hospital.

You will have the chance to attend regular medical workshops and learn more about current local issues such as HIV and tropical diseases. Over the years Tanzania has tried hard to teach the younger generation about health awareness and disease prevention. During your two weeks you will be able to go to local care centres carry out fun and interactive activities with the children regarding different healthcare issues.

During the weekend you will get the opportunity to experience the breathtaking scenery in one of Tanzania's national parks.

For those who want to do a longer stay, this project is available as a 4-week program on select dates. Those joining us on the four week program will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.

I now have that painting hanging in my room and whenever I look at it I remember the trip that changed my life. Read more...
