Radiography project, Tanzania

Medical Internship & Volunteer Organization (MIVO) was registered in the UK in 2014, but all the projects are based in and around Arusha, Tanzania. They are growing fast and already received lots of health care interns and professionals. They place volunteers at local healthcare and community facilities where they volunteer their clinical skills caring for a group of patients or locals in the community. Mainly the projects are based in hospitals, clinics and referral clinics which are all part of their network of local partners.

frequently asked questions

What are the registration costs?

€ 50 per person (non-refundable). The registration costs of LGA are deducted from the program costs of the trainee/volunteer/traveller and are therefore not extra costs.

What are the LGA mediation package costs and accommodation costs?

  • The LGA mediation package costs are mostly between €500 - €555 depending on whether you are going to do volunteer work or an internship and where.
  • A downpayment (non-refundable) is needed to start the matching procedure.
  • All costs are described in the program country brochures at each partner organization because the accommodation costs also differ (between € 100 and € 275 per month on average).
  • For Ghana, Mozambique and Swaziland accommodation costs, meals and mediation costs are all included in one total package price.

Do I receive an internship allowance or cost compensation?

Only possible in discussion with commercial companies in Mauritius. We are a small-scale development work organization that tries to keep costs as low as possible and mainly work with small local projects (N.G.O.'s) in Africa that cannot afford anything. But in some cases free accommodation is offered.

Why is there a difference in costs between a volunteer and an intern?

  • Anyone who is going to carry out a project, internship or minor related to a study is considered an intern.
  • In all other situations you are considered a volunteer (also retired people, professionals, graduates, people on a sabbatical or students who are going to do a project unrelated to their study).
  • A distinction is made between costs because study criteria, internship contracts and comprehensive project assignments with supervision are required for interns.

Can I raise money or organize crowd funding for my project?

Any form of generating finances or resources that can help the partner is highly encouraged by us!

Do you have any financial advice on how to pay for everything?

In every country brochure under heading 1.6 How to finance your trip, it is described how you can save costs. Together with other tips such as putting the study grant away from home, applying for a public transport reimbursement or subletting your room.
