Medical Volunteering, Cameroon
Medical programs in Cameroon welcome volunteers with a wide range of levels of experience, including qualified medical personnel, medical students and pre-med students. Attendance on a medical volunteer project is itself a helpful preparation for a medical career, for this reason, provided they are enthusiastic and truly eager to help in the health sector, even individuals without medical experience can be accepted.
Teaching in Schools, Cameroon
Volunteers in Cameroon contribute to the delivery of a range of subjects, among them English, sports, computer skills, and basic life skills for those with disabilities. To volunteer in Cameroon where you will be working at one of the under-resourced schools, no formal teaching qualification is required. Equally, while valuable, holding a TEFL certificate is not a stipulation. Typically, the children concerned will be between 4 and 17 years of age.
