Gerontology Internship in Africa

Julkaistu 30.5.2022, Haku päättyy 19.9.2022


Art in Tanzania supports and develops services for the growing older adults in the African village society.


Older people in Tanzania are culturally highly appreciated, and they will stay with their families rather than live alone. However, better medical care, nutrition and living conditions have resulted in people living longer. Nevertheless, Tanzania lacks social services for the elderly population, and there is an urgent need to provide essential supportive services, especially for low-income families.

The gerontology intern will perform tasks as follows
•Advocating public health topics such as common elder society illnesses, nutrition etc
•Assisting in conducting health checks when needed
•Physiotherapy type of training and exercises
•Assisting in organizing the typical daily tasks
•Creating daily hobbies and other mentally empowering activities
•Other tasks that the student is capable of bringing into the placement task

We look to be innovative. Interns bring their ideas that we look for to strengthen the fieldwork. We encourage innovation and self-led creativity in the professional program approach.

Work with women is underfunded, but Art in Tanzania has multi-professional interns and volunteers. We use teamwork to create opportunities. For example, one can teach how to start horticulture and look for the markets. The base effort is to increase the small business skills through the educational approach and increase awareness.

Academic level team leaders are daily supervising your internship. In addition, we monitor your work with a weekly plan and report system to secure you proceed well in your study program.

The internship outcome is to learn to use and get experience to implement your education in developing country conditions with limited capacitation. Also, to better understand the opportunities in a fast-growing economy.

Work hours are 6-8 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Your program can be from 2 weeks up to 12 months.

The program is ongoing, and we can adjust your start dates. We accept the applications of all students and alumni. Your placement is tailored to your background, experience, and interests to empower our daily work with the communities.

We provide 2x the local minimum wage of USD 100 per month for paid internships payable when you stay a minimum of 4 weeks.

The start and end dates are flexible and accommodate other travel arrangements in Tanzania.
