Kenya

Welcome to Kenya

The program is in Nakuru, this is the capital city of Nakuru County, located northwest of Nairobi. Nearby is Lake Nakuru National Park, where you can find rhinos, giraffes, lions, leopards, and thousands of flamingos.

Welcome to Nakuru town, a vibrant and thriving hub nestled on the picturesque north shore of Lake Nakuru with a population of around 500,000 residents, Nakuru stands tall as one of the largest urban centers in this beautiful country.

Steeped in history, this town was once a bustling center of European activity, witnessing the ebb and flow of cultural exchange and economic growth. Today, Nakuru has evolved into a dynamic metropolis, synonymous with a thriving manufacturing industry, bustling commercial shopping centers, and impactful agricultural initiatives.

As you explore the streets of Nakuru, you’ll be captivated by the energy and diversity that permeates every corner. The town pulses with life as people go about their daily routines, driven by the spirit of progress and innovation. From the bustling factories that breathe life into the local economy to the vibrant markets brimming with fresh produce, Nakuru showcases the industrious spirit of Kenya.

But it’s not just business and commerce that define this remarkable town. Nakuru’s natural surroundings are equally awe-inspiring. The shimmering waters of Lake Nakuru, a haven for flamingos and other enchanting wildlife, offer a serene escape from the urban buzz. The breathtaking landscapes, with their rolling hills and lush greenery, provide a stunning backdrop to daily life.

Whether you are volunteering alone or in a group, each room can accommodate two to eight people, depending on the size of the room. For those seeking privacy, we also have private rooms with dedicated bathrooms. We value cleanliness and hygiene, which is why each room has its bathroom and toilet.

We encourage all participants to use resources wisely, particularly electricity, and to be environmentally conscious. Power outages may occur during the day, but there is no need to panic because this is common in the village. There is also a readily available water supply to meet all of your basic needs.

Meals will be provided, and your rooms will be cleaned on weekends. However, we expect all guests to take responsibility for cleaning up after themselves and keeping the accommodations clean and organized. Our location is close to Greensteds International School and only a few minutes walk from Lake Nakuru National Park’s Southern Gate. It is approximately 15 kilometers from Nakuru town.

There are several supermarkets within a reasonable distance of about 5 kilometers for your convenience. There are also several shops within walking distance, as well as ATMs in nearby Nakuru town for any necessary financial transactions. Local markets in the free zone offer a variety of fruits and fish for those looking for fresh produce. Public transportation is widely available to help you get around the area.

Your Internship

Medical Internship in Kenya

This program is designed for people with a medical background, and you will be able to contribute based on your skill level and abilities.

You will participate in a variety of tasks at a local medical center or hospital, assisting those with limited access to affordable and high-quality healthcare. This program will allow you to shadow professionals and gain valuable insights into the healthcare system.

Kenya’s healthcare system is a complex and evolving network that strives to provide its population with accessible and high-quality healthcare services. The system is made up of both public and private healthcare providers, each with their own set of infrastructure and resources.

The unequal distribution of healthcare resources between urban and rural areas is one of the key challenges in Kenya’s healthcare system. Urban areas typically have better-equipped hospitals and a higher concentration of healthcare professionals, whereas rural areas frequently struggle with inadequate infrastructure and limited access to healthcare services.

Furthermore, some residents of the villages would be unable to afford transportation to the hospital. This gives participants the opportunity to volunteer as backpack nurses. This will entail gaining remote access for patients who are confined to their homes.

As long-distance walking is involved, the backpack nurses will be part of a challenging, enlightening, and adventurous experience. Later, they can relax by swimming in the pool at our hotel.

Through this program, you will not only improve your medical knowledge and skills, but you will also gain a better understanding of the challenges and realities that healthcare providers face in resource-constrained settings. Take advantage of the rewarding experience of working alongside dedicated local staff to improve healthcare access and outcomes in the Kenyan community.

Participants embarking on this program can anticipate engaging in a plethora of activities tailored to their specific skill set and educational background. They will have the opportunity to shadow local doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals responsible for both in-patient and outpatient care. Activities may encompass monitoring patients’ health conditions, observing medical procedures, and disseminating health outreach information within the community.

Contributions from participants in this program can significantly impact the hospital’s operations. Participants can share their unique knowledge and expertise while also donating additional resources or supplies whenever feasible. Such contributions would serve to alleviate financial constraints and ultimately benefit the local community members who rely on the hospital’s services.

In the remote corners of our world, access to quality healthcare remains a privilege that eludes many. However, with the establishment of a remarkable hospital by a local NGO, we are offering an extraordinary program that calls upon compassionate individuals like yourself to extend a helping hand, particularly to the dedicated nurses who tirelessly serve these communities.

But our mission doesn’t end within the hospital walls. We recognize that transportation barriers prevent some villagers from reaching the care they desperately need. That’s where you come in—as a backpack nurse, you have the incredible opportunity to bring healthcare directly to the doorsteps of those confined to their homesteads. This meaningful contribution allows you to make a lasting impact on the lives of these individuals and their families.

Requirements

You must have an established medical background—studying on a pre-medical track, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, occupational/physical therapy, or working in a relevant field.

Aims & Objectives

– To lend an extra hand in the hospitals, which are mostly understaffed.
– To share knowledge and experience with the local medical staff.
– To boost the efforts of the hospital in reaching patients who may be confined at home.

Schedule

Monday to Friday

You will spend 4-6 hours assisting hospital staff and attending to patients under close supervision by qualified personnel. The day could look like this:

Breakfast
Assist at local hospital/join backpack nurse
Lunch
Assist at a local hospital
Dinner

Please note that this schedule is flexible and subject to change based on weather conditions, local circumstances, and unforeseen events
