Volunteers with medical experience are needed to work in a local community health clinic/hospice. This center cares for children and adults suffering from HIV/AIDS. The clinical care area needs health professionals and medical/nursing students. The center is very busy, understaffed; with limited medical supplies.

Nursing and medical students are welcome and assist with tasks like dressing wounds, record and immunization chart keeping, helping dispense medications, helping to screen and organize patients and assisting with administrative needs or seminars. *Medical volunteers must submit a copy of their credentials or nursing certificate.

Program Highlights

Volunteering Abroad in Lusaka: Lusaka is the colorful capital city that maintains a unique sense of African charm. The lively urban area is spread out over 30 miles with growing suburbs, shanty towns and large markets that are a hive of activity. The city has thousands of market stalls with fruit, fish, nuts, African art and clothing. Although the unemployment rate in the city is quite high, over 60%, there are few beggars and street crime.. Most people try to make an honest living, selling their wares or services and are polite and friendly.

In Lusaka you can experience true Africa; large outdoor markets, notable historical and cultural sites; and nearby game reserves which are less than a day's trip away from the city.

Because many villagers come to the city to seek a better life for their families, there is an extremely high number of street children, either orphaned or neglected. Children on the street lack access to food, protection, health care and education. This lack of education had debilitating effects on the community children are not equipped with the tools to escape poverty and disease because they were unable to read, write, and calculate simple sums. In addition, youth are lacking the encouragement, competition, and social structure provided in school that allows them to maximize their human potential and realize their dreams.

We offer volunteer placements working in orphanages, community centers, medical health clinics working against the spread of HIV/Aids. With our volunteer program we allow you to discover the wonders of southern Africa, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work. This is a great opportunity to explore real life in Africa, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
