Minor, Internship, Volunteerwork
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.
Overall rating of my Let's Go Mauritius internship: 5 out of 5 stars.
I have experienced the people of Mauritius as incredibly friendly, hospitable and proud of their country. I have never felt unsafe in this country. Every local is excited to take students around the country and show them the unknown places. Mauritius itself is an amazing country. You don't realize you're in Africa because it's a bit more developed than I expected. Nature is breathtaking. Definitely recommended and an experience you will never forget. I did not expect to make friends for life in advance, this has happened.
I did research into the reason for the high number of diabetes patients in Mauritius and wrote an advisory report on this. I would like to go back and start a project to discover diabetes earlier.
I have experienced the guidance of Let's Go Africa as very pleasant. They are clear in everything and regularly ask if everything is going well. You can easily contact us.
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?
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?
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.
