Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Our foundation  facilitates cross-cultural service learning, volunteer vacations, community initiatives, and scholarships in highland Ecuador and Mali's Dogon Country.

We are looking for a dental professional to help us better organize our system for dental outreach work in rural communities in Ecuador. We want someone detail-oriented who can improve our inventory system, organization of supplies, and process during clinics, as well as providing follow-up dental care for patients who need additional procedures, such as root canals.

DELIVERABLES

We will have a system for keeping track of our dental inventory and needs that functions smoothly without continuing involvement from an expert.  At least 5 patients referred for more care during our outreach clinics will receive the care they need free of charge.

NEEDED SKILLS:

  • Medical Professionals

NEEDED LANGUAGES:
