Orphanage Internship Project in Tanzania

With HIV/AIDS leaving a devastating number of children homeless and orphaned, Tanzania is still suffering as Africa’s poorest nations. There is a large number of orphanages taking care of an astounding number of orphaned children in Tanzania. Global Crossroad partners with these orphanages, sending in interns to fill the gap of the under resourced orphanages.

Interns will get involved in basic activities like teaching and taking care of children. They can teach English, math and science, and help the children with their homework. They can arrange for other activities like singing, dancing, art and craft too. Interns can also choose to work in the administration department to get an understanding on the day to activities of the orphanage administration.

Interns will learn how an orphanage runs, and will get a glimpse into the lives of orphaned children in Tanzania. Internship in the orphanage combines social work and personal satisfaction of contributing for the better of these children. The internship is an opportunity for professional as well as personal development; an experience that can be enriching and eye opening.

The internship does not have educational requirements and does not require skills and experience from the interns. But qualities like patience and flexibility are highly regarded.

Teaching Internship Project in Tanzania

Despite English being a national language of Tanzania, children from under privileged families strive hard to learn standard English as they cannot afford to go to schools that are well equipped with resources and qualified teachers. Teaching English Project by Global Crossroad, places interns to teach English to the children, helping children in developing their conversational and comprehension skills.

As teaching interns, interns will be responsible to conduct English classes under the local curriculum or help the English teacher conduct classes and classroom activities and make classes more interactive and fun. The interns can also help the teachers in curriculum development or can also choose to support the school administration in daily administrative duties too.

Interns will get firsthand experience in a local school, teaching children. They will get to learn more about classrooms, teaching styles and education, learning from teaching in challenging environments and situations. Interns will also get to travel to a new place for their internship, make their resumes stronger and get the satisfaction of giving back to the community.

Though no educational qualification and experience is required for the Teaching Internship Project, the interns should be flexible working in an environment different than they are used to and should be patient, as teachers.

HIV/AIDS Internship Project in Tanzania

Around 1.6 million people in Tanzania are living with HIV/AIDS according to survey results of 2011, which has given rise to the need for effective counseling and awareness about HIV/AIDS in the Tanzanian communities. Global Crossroad provides internship opportunities with HIV/AIDS Internship Project in local organizations working on HIV/AIDS in Tanzania.

Interns for the HIV/AIDS project will participate in HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns and lead programs. They can also conduct counseling sessions to the locals infected by HIV/AIDS and visiting infected patients at their homes. They will also be responsible for providing educational trainings and promote support groups in the communities.

Interns in the HIV/AIDS project will get hands on experience in working with communities directly affected by HIV/AIDS. Interns will learn a lot and get a clear picture of HIV/AIDS and its impacts on the Tanzanian people. It is a good starting point for a career dedicated to public health and HIV/AIDS and also one of the best ways to visit a completely new country and immerse into its unique culture.

Interns should be patient and adaptable to changes. They should be compassionate towards the people and should have the enthusiasm and passion for helping those in need. However, educational requirements and experience are not required for the internship.

Interns will be performing basic medical duties like helping the doctors and medical professionals with daily check up and providing basic first aid care. The interns can shadow the doctors, nurses, health workers and therapists. They can also treat minor injuries and perform tasks such as, cleaning and bandaging wounds take the vital signs, record patient details and distribute medicines.

Interns will have the chance to travel to a new place in order to learn something new and to give back to the community they are working on.

The intern for the health program must possess a health care certification such as an ID as a medical student, EMT or paramedic certification, or nursing or physician's credentials. Medical interns without credentials are not allowed to work in this program because of the potential risk. The hospitals require a copy of your resume, clearly stating credentials and education before your arrival to the project.
