Special Needs Medical Assistance Program

Who We Are Looking For:

We are seeking individuals who are qualified, experienced, or studying in the following fields:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech-Language Therapy
  • Education (Teachers/teaching assistants)
  • Special Educational Needs and/or Disability Support
  • Medicine (Doctors/Nurses/Psychologists/ Psychiatrists/Paediatricians)
Your knowledge and expertise will provide a level of care and support that these families have never experienced before. Your role includes identifying disorders, illnesses, and symptoms, offering palliative, curative, pharmaceutical, and holistic treatments, and educating both the children and their families.

Program Details:

During your time with MRCI, you will stay at our base camp located in the picturesque Turtle Cove on Nosy Komba. You will travel to Nosy Be and The Sunrise Centre daily by boat and Tuk-Tuk. The transportation expenses are included in the program fee, and a packed lunch is thoughtfully provided by our camp’s canteen staff.

As a volunteer, you will actively participate in assisting the students with their medical needs and skills as well as supporting the centre’s routines of education, life skills, sports, music and play. 

While we welcome all forms of support, for a more dedicated volunteering experience, we recommend a minimum stay of two weeks. This duration allows us to maximize the benefits of your time in Madagascar.

For the safety and well-being of the children and adults you will be working with, we require all volunteers to complete a criminal background check. Additionally, we will require your CV and would like to arrange a discussion about your previous work experience and volunteering interests to ensure the project’s effectiveness and satisfaction for both parties.

Program Costs

Start Dates: 

All Year Round / Every first & third Monday of the month. Program fees include participation in the program as well as meals and accommodation at our camp.
