Occupational & Speech Therapy Placements
As a volunteer you will assist local therapists in hospitals, clinics and centres across the developing world. Whether you are a student at university or a trained professional, you will have an important role to play. This project is an exciting and worthwhile way of enhancing your skills and giving back to local communities.
Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy volunteers are in high demand in developing countries. The majority of the population is unable to afford the luxury of rehabilitation and care when they need it. Hospitals and health centres are often lacking the resources, knowledge and trained staff required to provide the appropriate care for patients.
These placements are designed to provide a challenge to those who already have some experience working in the field of Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy. Whether you find yourself working with HIV patients in Ethiopia, treating the elderly in Bolivia, or working with deaf children in Togo, you are sure to return home with a great deal of experience and understanding.
