Social Impact Project for Health Sector Experteer for Growing Health Social Enterprises
Project Description and Impact
Health clinics in Tanzania need to grow in order to support the countries growing population. Government facilities are full to capacity, and private facilities that exist are not an option for the many people living on less than $2 a day but social enterprises are popping up that want to provide high quality, affordable healthcare, but they need support to grow. We will provide business development support to private health clinics, giving them everything they need to run smoothly, and at a cost that is affordable to their populations. At the end of the project, you will have worked directly with 2 to 3 health businesses, and contributed to the development of a health business development curriculum that will serve the needs of these businesses.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
Working with us you'll get key insights into the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Tanzania, and a look at sustainable development in action. You'll see the challenges entrepreneurs face in growing their business, but also the passion they have to grow Tanzania. You'll hopefully pick up some Swahili too, working with our bi-lingual team.
Many of our volunteers have gone onto switch career paths into the startup life or development work. This is a great opportunity to see if this is the right environment for you
As is Tanzanian tradition, we'll cover the costs of your lunch Monday - Friday.
Transport costs to visit entrepreneurs are covered. Our offices function as co-working spaces, and you'll be invited to any events we have taking place with our entrepreneurs. If you're also looking to learn about a new sector, you can work with our team to support entrepreneurs outside of health.
