A Broader View offers an unique experience for volunteers with flexible dates and length of trips. Volunteers can choose trips that range from two to eight weeks long and include a language immersion option as well. Finding a location, project, and date to volunteer with these projects is up to the individual and A Broader View is available to help individuals and groups navigate this process.
Many facilities in Tanzania lack modern facilities, making medical assistance vital and challenging at this location. Volunteers will shadow a local physician, and together you will be involved in the day-to-day aspects of the hospital, observe and assist with procedures, share and educate on basic hygiene and healthcare. Volunteers also have options to work with a local program helping families living with HIV/Aids. Most common ailments include malaria, UTI, hypertension, peptic ulcer, skin conditions, tooth abscesses and child birth complications.
