Costs Explained


Do you want to make a difference in the world of healthcare and education? Look no further than our Healthcare Education initiative! Whether you’re an established medical professional or simply passionate about teaching basic first-aid and personal hygiene, your skills are invaluable to our mission.

Due to the extreme variances in hygiene and health practices, we need participants on both ends of the medical spectrum. Our qualified professionals conduct health camps and dental checkups, while our education-focused participants teach basic first-aid and personal hygiene, including handwashing, toothbrushing, and general cleanliness. Together, we work to prevent avoidable health problems and easily communicable diseases.

Our newly established project welcomes everyone who is interested in education and simple hygiene techniques. Medical professionals who can offer guidance on the project’s development are immensely valuable, but no medical background is necessary to join us. As a participant, you will help run healthcare campaigns in local schools, actively teaching the importance of basic hygiene and emphasizing proper toothbrushing, handwashing, and body cleanliness. By starting simple education early, we can make a significant impact on the immediate and future healthcare of the community.

If you have a medical background, you can even help organize check-up clinics for local children and adults. The action plan is updated every Friday to ensure we stay focused and aligned with our goals. So, what are you waiting for? Join our Healthcare Education initiative today and be part of the solution!

Daily Life

Welcome to our Healthcare Education project, where you can make a difference in the lives of local children through teaching valuable health and hygiene practices.

Your journey begins on Monday, where you’ll attend a meeting with our Medical Officer to learn about the health issues facing the community and receive training on what’s required of you. After the meeting, you’ll have time to prepare for the day’s activities before heading to a local school. There, you’ll have the opportunity to organize engaging activities that will help the children learn easily. Once you’ve returned from the school, you’ll have the chance to share your experiences and provide feedback.

Throughout the project, you’ll spend one to two hours each morning preparing lessons and two to three hours in the afternoon teaching at a local elementary, high school, or university. While it’s entirely up to you to decide what to teach, we’ll provide you with examples of what previous participants have done to help you get started.

From Tuesday to Friday, after enjoying a delicious breakfast, you’ll prepare for the day’s activities before heading to the allocated schools/projects. There, you’ll engage with the local children, teaching them vital first-aid, hygiene, and personal care practices in an engaging and attractive manner.

We know that your time is valuable, so we’ve designed our Healthcare Education project to make a real impact in the lives of those you serve. Join us today and help make a difference in the world of healthcare and education.
