As an intern, you will assist health care professionals and workers in these rural health posts and community clinics. Work responsibilities vary with your education, skill and experience. Interns participating in this HIV/AIDS project will contribute to create public awareness and continue the ongoing programs aiming to spread awareness and education.
There are specific education, experience, skills and/or qualifications needed to join the HIV/AIDS project. However, interns are expected to be flexible and patient as well as possess compassion and love for the often impoverished and HIV-infected people (as well as their loved ones).
- Interns responsibilities
Job responsibilities of interns joining the HIV/AIDS project vary with education, skills, experience, and qualifications. Usually, interns assist with counseling, nutritional programs (if the assigned center offers such a service), visiting patients and their families, and participating in public awareness. Interns will also provide tips to patients on health, nutrition and sanitation as well as maintain patients' records.
One of the most distinguished features of IFRE's internships in Tanzania is the guidance of supervisors. IFRE will assign a qualified supervisor to provide assistance for all interns throughout the duration of their chosen internship. Individuals filling the role of supervisor are usually either the director or chosen staff member of the project which interns choose. During your time as an international intern, you will be assigned a number of duties which volunteers also perform (in this sense, there are very few differences between IFRE's volunteers and interns).
In the internship, you will select a particular area of interest related to HIV/AIDS and explore the issue further with the help of an assigned supervisor. Please note: the project supervisor Does not develop internships as this is up to the intern to get as much or as little out of their projects. All participants should be proactive to ensure the ultimate success of their internships. Supervisors will provide at least five (5) hours each week to make certain that interns are adequately guided.
IFRE arranges meals, living accommodations and supervision from the beginning to end of the internship. During the first week (if enrolled in the language and culture program), interns stay in our IFRE's hostel in Dar es Salaam which also doubles as our local offices/base of operations. Located in Dar es Salaam, interns are provided access to various parts of the city. A husband and wife team (our local coordinator who also conducts the culture and language course) runs the hostel - where interns receive three (3) meals a day.
During the internship period, interns stay with a host family. We arrange a separate room for interns with shared bathroom facilities in host families. Details pertaining to living accommodations will be provided in placement details prior to arrival in-country. IFRE's main offices are located in Dar es Salaam - allowing interns access to the local coordinator.
IFRE's internships in Tanzania begin on the first and third Monday of each month. IFRE is proud to offer the same services offered by our competitors but at a highly economical price (nearly 50-175%). Furthermore, we at IFRE do not make six-figure salaries. What we DO is work very hard and effectively to keep costs down for individuals seeking an international internship. We remain constantly devoted to maintaining both the quality of our programs and ensuring the safety of our international interns.
