WellShare Volunteers in Tanzania display the pregnancy register they helped create.
A group of dedicated volunteers started WellShare in 1979. Thirty years later, we still depend on the work of passionate volunteers to expand our impact around the world.
Please Note: Volunteer and internship opportunities with WellShare are currently available only at our headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
WellShare welcomes professionals and students (undergraduate and graduate) who are seeking service opportunities or internships. We place volunteers with a range of experience and skills, not limited to the health field.
For more information on specific opportunities, please follow the link below.
The MIHV-Tz office is located in the rural town of Karatu, which is approximately 2 hours west of Arusha. It is located in one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen (that says a lot since I have done quite a bit of traveling). Within a few hours, you have access to Tarangire, Lake Manyara, the Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti. Walking around town you will meet a diversity of local people, including the much talked about Maasai. Read more about Sarah's experience.
Former WellShare International Volunteer Brenda Senyana recently won the award for 'Community Volunteer of the Year' by the Ugandan Association of Minnesota. We recently got a change to interview Brenda about her experience working with WellShare and what receiving this award means to her. Click here to read more.
