Your Campus Connection


Description:

This project was initiated in response to requests made by the Directors of two new health centers at Kpalimé. The project aims to alleviate the shortage of nursing staff at these very young health centers which cannot afford to hire sufficient personnel. The project is open to health care specialists: doctors, midwives, nurses, laboratory technicians, biologists, but also to students who wish to get training and experience about tropical health conditions.

The volunteers will assist the nursing staff to treat and assist patients. The centers provide testing laboratories, medical services, maternity wards where the volunteers can work. The volunteers may work in other community health centers as well, in the prefectures of Agou or Dagne or Kloto.

Duration of the project: 1 - 12 months. Volunteers are expected to arrive at the beginning of the month (from 1st to 5th of the month) because of the training week session for each project.

The volunteers will live with a host family which is an opportunity to learn about the local community, culture and language. Volunteers are expected to be sensitive to the local culture and make an effort to integrate into the community. So the most important qualities we are looking for are enthusiasm, flexibility and willingness to experience something completely new.

Benefits:

A volunteer experience may give you ideas or a push in deciding your professional aspirations - one of the most important and difficult decisions one should make in life. It can make stronger your motivation or give you additional inspiration in what you are studying or working. And most important, by being a volunteer you gain the hands-on experience you will hardly get at lectures or at the office desk. In an international volunteer project you can have such an involving and inspiring time!
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
