Internships in Teaching

Your contribution to teach English as a second language or other subjects will be highly appreciated and fulfilling to yourself. We work with a number of schools where you can be placed. Teachers work under the supervision of an experienced member of the school teaching staff appointed by the Head Master.

A college degree or teaching training are not required, but suitable persons are expected to have at least graduated from high school or be enrolled in a college. On completion of a mandatory teacher orientation, the intern or volunteer abroad teacher will be expected to work for between 4 to 5 hours a day.  Details of the some of the schools are provided in the brochure.

Internship With Children

The greatest cause of prevalence abandoned children in Zanzibar is poverty. As the HIV/AIDS pandemic takes its toll many kids have been left without parents to take care of them. Such neglected kids have often been taken by other families or by charitable persons and groups and put up in orphanages. Orphanage operators are often in great need of labor support to supplement their efforts.

International interns at orphanages assist in preparing meals for the kids, washing clothes, doing the dishes and doing the many chores that running such a place entails. In the evening, once the kids are back from school, interns abroad in Zanzibar could play with them plus assist them with their homework.

Medical & Dental internships Abroad

Our Africa health internships are open to healthcare students as well as pre-med, pre-dentistry and pre-nursing students. A student ID is required at the start of the internship. All prospective medical interns also need to submit a resume showing their preparedness for the internship including any relevant college courses taken, and what they hope to achieve from the medical internship placement in Africa.

As an overseas medical internship (medical/dental students, nursing students or interns), you will work with local staff in support of the health care efforts. You can also work as a dental or medical assistant intern at one of the local hospitals. Generally you will assist/support the doctor/dentists or clinician in the normal routine of medical work e.g. taking vital signs, dressing wounds, taking patients history, counseling patients, providing assurance and moral support to patients' family, disbursing minor drugs etc.

There are a number of medical  and dental clinics in Zanzibar where you can be placed. We also have wonderful international internship placement opportunities for dentists and dental technicians and hygienists in a number of Zanzibari hospital dental units.  You will find the Zanzibar dental and medical internship abroad opportunity enlightening and rewarding.

Internship with HIV/AIDS Awareness and Care

In collaboration with the local community, a number of local HIV/AIDS project seek to foster awareness about HIV/AIDS by offering free training programs for the community. Ideally interns overseas in Zanzibar in this project are first exposed to the main issues surrounding  HIV and AIDS mainly in the first week.

In subsequent weeks, volunteers in Zanzibar accompany local staff in their routine activities. Those doing internship abroad with this HIV program will participate in offering clinics for patients, families and people wanting to test for HIV and AIDS. Overseas volunteers will also participate in home visit with the patients and families to provide treatment, food, and care and sometimes help with home chores.

International interns will be involved in teaching about Sexually Transmitted Diseases including HIV and AIDS, and teaching about sexuality, to youths and parents. International volunteers with HIV and AIDS program in Zanzibar should also be prepared to visit with and providing support to orphans of HIV and AIDS,

International volunteers and overseas interns with the AIDS program should come prepared to learn and participate in community education. International interns and volunteers abroad should also be ready to visit with HIV affected and infected members of the community and assist them with domestic chores.
