We provide elective placements for students studying medicine, nursing, midwifery, nutrition and occupational therapy. We also provide volunteering opportunities for those interested in following a career in these professions and for those already qualified. Our current placement programme covers:

  • Medical Electives – which cover medicine, nursing, nutrition and occupational therapy.
  • Medical Students volunteering – for those interested in learning and gaining experience in their chosen field in a developing country and in helping the local communities with their knowledge and skills.
  • Medical professionals volunteering – all medically qualified people who wish to take part in voluntary work in a developing country to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the wider world and/or to share their expertise with the local communities.
  • Midwifery Electives and Volunteering – For those training to be a midwife who are looking for a medical elective abroad and for students who are interested in a career in midwifery, we have placements to offer where you will gain valuable experience.

Through our close associations with local hospitals and our experience of being the leading partner in setting up and running temporary medical clinics in remote rural locations, we have unrivalled opportunities for medical students to experience a wide range of learning opportunities. You will be able to work alongside medical professionals in St Mary’s Hospital in Mumias where resources are limited and staffing levels poor.

I was astounded by the positivity and energy of these wonderful children. They have so little: the clothes on their back (often dirty and torn), the shoes on their feet, and a roof over their heads which may leak when it rains. Most have horrific pasts, which range from abandonment, to witnessing their parents murder, to HIV infection. And yet they are happy. They lack the possessions and privileges that children from New Zealand are born into, but they live their lives with enthusiasm, friendship and hope.

From the word go we were made to feel welcome and that our being there was really making a difference. The families and guardians I met, whose children attend the day care centres were truly appreciative of the work we did and of Nasios’ ongoing involvement in the area.

Having previously volunteered with other organisations I was impressed with Nasio from the start. I had the opportunity to meet other members of the team in a ‘before you travel’ meeting and on arrival in Musanda there was a welcome pack ready and waiting for me on my bed. Overall my experience volunteering with Nasio was incredibly positive and I can’t wait to go back!
