Über das Programm

St. Elizabeth Hospital is a medical facility located in the center of Arusha. Specializations include paediatrics and obstetrics, tuberculosis and malaria testing and treatment, HIV / AIDS counseling as well as diagnosis and therapy as part of the US support program, ophthalmology and a broad-based surgical clinic. The clinic also offers outreach programs for remote areas.
The hospital is directed by Godson Kisanga together with 7 doctors and a number of nurses and additional medical staff. Overall, the clinic employs 120 people. The St. Elizabeth Hospital began in 1975 as a pharmacy and was expanded in 1984 to a full-service hospital with a growing number of beds.

The clinic works almost exclusively with donations. While the dental, eye and HIV clinic was originally sponsored, more is needed to further build different clinic. The clinic has a new pediatric ward and an isolation ward upstairs. Further stations are in planning. Patient fees are moderate, but pregnant women, children and the elderly often receive free benefits. There is also a physiotherapy ward.

Furthermore, the clinic cares about 80 to 100 patients per day and can accommodate up to 8 volunteers.

In general, it is a bonus if volunteers have already gained some medical experience or are already qualified. However, motivated volunteers who wish to study or start a medical education (nurse, midwife, EMT, etc.) and have no prior knowledge are also most welcome to spend an internship at St. Elizabeth. We issue all relevant certificates to have the internship recognized by your university or training facility (e.g. as a nursing internship) in your home country.

Work on the maternity ward: Work in the delivery room at St. Elizabeth is reserved exclusively for qualified professionals. It is therefore unfortunately not possible for pre-medicals to assist here.

Please note:  As a volunteer at St. Elizabeth Hospital, you need to bring your own work clothes. Other equipment and the surgical area clothing is also provided. We will give you detailed information on what you will need to bring.

Tagesablauf

Your day starts at about 8 am in the morning. The St. Elizabeth Hospital is located in downtown Arusha, about 20 minutes (depending on traffic) with the famous minibuses (Dala Dala) away. It is a direct bus connection, so the way is very relaxing for you.

Volunteers can either choose one work field or rotate between the different wards, depending on their interests, skills and knowledge. There will always be a doctor or nurse who will give instructions and new tasks if needed. The hospital relies on volunteers who take their work as serious as any other paid employment or internship abroad or in their home country.

Although the St. Elizabeth is a 24-hour clinic, you will finish your day at around 4 pm.

Freizeitaktivitäten

The project is based in Arusha, Tanzania. There are several free time activities volunteers can engage in. We help to organize Safaris, mountain climbs and shorter tours like hiking, horse riding, visit to a nearby massai village, trip to the hotsprings and waterfalls, coffee tours, etc. to the nearer surroundings at affordable rates. There are lots of things you can do during your free time or at the weekends in Arusha itself. There are different markets like second hand market, spice markets or massai market, as well as typical african restaurants and bars. Furthermore, the area you will live is very beautiful and you can either go to a lake and do canoeing or you can go to a lodge with a pool near to the hostel to relax. 
With so many possible activities, you should always keep in mind that the project assignment always comes first and excursions have to be adapted to the work in the project. Ideally, you should only go on longer trips after you have completed your volunteer placement.

Unterkunft

STEP AFRICA HOSTELS

Our STEP Africa houses are centrally located in the district of Njiro, Arusha, from where the projects can be easily reached. The houses are not far from each other, so that volunteers can visit each other and spend time with the residents of the other houses at any time. 

Our “headquarters” in Arusha is the STEP Africa house on Rashida Street, where our office is also located. However, our volunteer supervisors divide their time between the houses so that our volunteers are well looked after at all locations. Each house has a team of lovely house mums who are responsible for cooking and cleanliness, as well as our night guards and gardeners.

What unites our volunteer houses is that they are located in the middle of Tanzanian life, central yet quiet. Bus connections, restaurants, cinemas, pharmacies, supermarkets and numerous other shops are located in the village, and the city centre is only 10-15 minutes away by bus. All our projects can be easily reached from here. In the STEP houses you will always meet like-minded people with whom you can exchange ideas and gather new ideas for your project. We serve a typical Tanzanian breakfast consisting of white bread and black tea and other side dishes such as eggs, fruits and mandazi and delicious local dishes for dinner (vegetarians/vegans are catered for separately!). We want you to feel comfortable in our accommodation, so we place a lot of emphasis on friendly interaction and a family atmosphere. In the cosy courtyards and gardens you can relax from work and the sometimes exhausting African daily life.

The STEP Africa houses each consist of shared rooms with bunk beds and double (+50€/week) / single rooms (+95€/week). In addition, there is a kitchen with its own refrigerator for our volunteers, an oven, bathrooms, common rooms equipped with comfortable sofas and TV facilities, as well as covered outdoor dining areas.

HOST FAMILIES (+50€ / week)

There is also the possibility to stay with a host family during your time in Arusha. Our host mamas Vicky and Salma offer a total of 18 spaces within their respective homes and have years of experience hosting international volunteers.

It will be easy to socialise with other volunteers and meet like-minded people. Vicky is located in the same district as our STEP-Africa Hostels while Salma’s home is in Kimandolu which is further from the other accommodation but a little more convenient to some of our projects. Our Host Mamas offer the volunteers a typical Tanzanian breakfast as well as a hot dinner. Large common areas invites you to sit together and exchange ideas after an exciting day. Living in a Host Family in Tanzania gives you an even closer insight into the lives of African families.

Verpflegung

Food (breakfast and dinner) is provided from Monday to Friday. The breakfast includes tea, white bread, butter, jam, peanutbutter and an african special of the day like Mandazi or cooked banana. Our house mamas cooks delicious typical tanzania dinner for you e.g. rice with beans or chapati. 

During the weekends volunteers can use the kitchen for cooking or eat in one of the several restaurants in and around Arusha. 

Safe filtered drinking water as well as the fridges in the kitchen are available for all volunteers. Even as a vegetarian, you will not have problems either at the hostel, nor outside at local restaurants in Arusha.

Über die Organisation

STEP Africa is a Tanzanian social enterprise founded in German-Tanzanian cooperation. We offer a variety of volunteer projects, internships and culture-sensitive travel.

Lerne deine Organisation kennen

Our programs are based on the principle of learning with and from each other in an increasingly globalized world. Broadening your horizons and looking outside the box is one of the most valuable experiences that will shape your future life. A trip to Africa opens your eyes to other realities and perspectives. We firmly believe in the power of change through intercultural exchange. With our programs we promote and demand equality and cultural tolerance. We know and love Tanzania like no other country and can tell exactly what is important when organizing your stay. As a sustainable organization, we support, with the help of our volunteers, selected projects and initiatives in Tanzania.

Step Africa - Exchange for Change Limited was founded in 2014 in German - Tanzanian cooperation and is led by Kira Uher as its on site director in ArushaWhile Kira works hand in hand with her administration team behind the scenes, our volunteers are accompanied through their time in Tanzania by a wonderful German-Tanzanian team of supervisors. Our entire team is based on-site in Tanzania, eliminating the need for expensive administrative structures.  

Meaningful Volunteering

We only place our volunteers into projects in which they can gain a lot of valuable experience for their future. Our volunteers do not replace local workers. Volunteers are assistants who offer support to employees. They also use their expertise to teach their target groups new skills and to open new perspectives.

Reducing Prejudices

What many of us have learned about Africa in the media doesn’t always reflect the truth. In Africa there is more than just poverty and misery. Tanzania is a country full of ideas and resources, politically stable and of breathtaking beauty. 

STEP Africa wants to give people of every age the chance to get to know the beauty but also the difficulties and challenges of Tanzania with their own eyes. Internships are a wonderful opportunity to meet people and small aid initiatives on an equal footing, to learn how to work, to assist the local workforce and to develop long-term and sustainable friendship and cooperation through intercultural dialogue.

We know what we are talking about! Our team combines relevant qualifications and many years of experience in education and social work in Tanzania. 

Our team is looking forward to welcoming you in Tanzania!
