AIESEC

The Health Project is an AIESEC provided project that enables participants to discover emerging healthcare through the realization of a health campaign. Indeed, exchange participants are sent to Recife, Brazil where they work at a local NGO (Anjo Da Guarda) to help kids with disabilities. As this experience is based on observation, the participants are not allowed to do the work themselves but rather assist the experts for a duration of six weeks. Alongside their NGO, participants are expected to choose an area of expertise of the NGO, and create a campaign that aims to raise awareness. The students are free to use their creativity to make their campaign as attractive as possible. Consequently, the use of posters, flyers, PowerPoint presentations at seminars is strongly advised.

During their stay, our exchange participants stay at a host family in the city. It has a great location because it is quite close to the NGO. Besides this, the house has 24/7 access to water, electricity and gas. Obviously, the participants should not expect a luxurious accommodation, but they are provided with anything needed to live with, such as a sink, a shower, a stove, a bed, etc. If there are any problems, AIESEC Recife will be more than happy to solve these issues.
