My Malawi Medical Experience

My time as a medical volunteer with NAV in the Nkope Village of Malawi was really lovely. I spent my mornings using my medical skills to care for a variety of wounds and infections in mobile clinics. My fellow volunteers and I brought supplies to surrounding villages that may otherwise not have the ability to receive medical care, and the community that we interacted with was so kind, welcoming, and appreciative. In the afternoons, we spent our time educating these communities about various medical issues that were relevant to their care and also taught some village leaders how to care for basic wounds themselves. Overall, I really enjoyed my time in Malawi and was touched by the people that I cared for, especially the children! I would suggest this program if you are looking to utilize your medical skills to enhance the lives of those who would otherwise not receive any care at all.

A fantastic experience

I took part in the medical volunteer project for 4 weeks from May to June. I can safely say that Malawi has been one of my favorite countries to visit. The overall vibe of the village, the people (especially the children) have impacted me in more ways that I could have ever imagined. It was a privilege to work with so many dedicated volunteers, staff members, as well as members of the community that are so passionate about what they do. I had a fantastic time learning and growing as the days went by during the adventure. In the years to come, I would love to return to this beautiful community and come back as an even more knowledgeable individual. Thank you to all who have made this experience possible!

The warm heart of Africa

For the last four weeks, I stayed at Mlambe Cottage, Nkope, being involved in the medical project of NAV. These four weeks have been very special to me. The staff and the local people were welcoming and helpful. We helped the community by teaching them the basics of wound care and (infectious) diseases. The project is sustainable; when I left, the lessons the people learned from me were still in the community.

My time in Malawi has been an amazing experience! After these four weeks I completely understand why Malawi is called 'The warm heart of Africa'!

A life changing year!!!

I went on a one year long course, living in the bush and learning about the natural world from people that are truly passionate about what they do, and the best in their fields (just my opinion).

This course can be a gap year for some, who just want to experience the African bush in the most amazing way possible. Camping out in the bush, going on bush walks and drives, all while learning more about the magic that is often over looked.

There are others, like myself, who undertook this course with the hopes of starting a new career in guiding and further learning and educating others about the bush. As I believe that all of us are put on this earth to look after the fauna and flora that we have been blessed with, this course has truly put me on my path to educate and share the magic of the bush with others.

I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to expand their understanding of this world at its core and have the most incredible year of their lives, while making some life long friends that will stand by you through thick and thin.

Volunteering in Kenya

I had a wonderful experience during the stay in a small village named kimilili in bungoma town. The lifestyle of was very different compared to staying in the urban areas. The people were very friendly and helpful. When the house for a family was been built there were many people that came to help assemble the components and complete it. My visit to the school was the best part of the entire program as I left back memories and smiles on every students face. I encourage that everyone should participate and give back to the society.
