Marafiki Africa offers three different programs: Business, Health, and General Service (see descriptions below)

BUSINESS
Our business internship program provides a unique opportunity for volunteers to economically empower small business owners in east Africa. After learning about each business owner’s situation and challenges, volunteers present ideas, opportunities, and solutions. After the internship program, participants will be able to put international consulting, leadership, and other valuable experiences on their resumes. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to experience a world-class safari at the end of the trip.

Because the program is strengthened by diverse experience and expertise, the program is not limited to business minds only. All are welcome to apply.

Session 1 / Business

HEALTH

Our pre-health program is specially catered to students preparing for medical school and other health professions. During the course of the trip, volunteers explore health, hygiene, and nutrition in the developing world. We have the ability to cater the experience in Africa to medical school, dental school, nursing school, and other pre-health career needs.

Volunteers gain valuable first-hand experience in clinics, orphanages, and communities. We will be happy to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf at the end of your service. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to experience a world-class safari at the end of the trip.

GENERAL SERVICE
Volunteers participate in the development of impoverished communities in East Africa by partnering with village leadership and the community. In most cases, leadership in remote areas seek help in accomplishing their goals for education, health, and business but often lack sufficient resources and expertise to achieve those goals. Marafiki Africa volunteers help them to achieve their goals and experience the rich culture of East African tribes. A few examples of past projects include a water pipeline, school restoration, medical clinic restoration, and hygiene kit distribution. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to experience a world-class safari at the end of the trip.
