The hospital will welcome you as a keen learner and will also expect you to share your knowledge of the medical techniques from your country.

You will get to taste the wonderful food too as you are given a traditional Nepali Style lunch everyday while you are working. You will have a local support contact who will be there for you throughout your placement.
Applicants should be medical professionals, students or trainees. Your responsibilities and the type of work you will be doing depend on the resume you provide before you start. CV is required.
Learn Capoeira in the Sports Development Project in Brazil
Sports have become vital for Rio de Janeiro’s lower income communities, providing children and adolescents with recreational outlets. At just about every corner of Rio de Janeiro, you will find locals playing the national sport of futebol. With the few entertainment options for youth in lower income communities, sports have become an essential part of favela life, especially among children and adolescents.
Given the lack of entertainment and job opportunities, children are increasingly getting caught up in illegal activities. The Sports project aims to provide children with friendly competition in a safe and fun environment. Volunteers on this project have the opportunity to work with children in popular Brazilian sports, such as futebol, futsal, capoeira, and surfing.
Volunteers do not need to be sports stars to participate on this project, but a passion and enthusiasm for sports goes a long way! Volunteers are encouraged to list their preferences and skills when applying for the Sports project, but will be required to be flexible and participate in a variety of sports where required.
Please note, many of the placements are based outdoors and are dependent on good weather. In the event of bad weather, our local staff will do their best to place volunteers at other projects, such as Childcare or Community Development.
