As part of their service-learning experience in Tanzania, students are placed in a service project with a local NGO, government agency, research project, or hospital that is tailored to their personal interests in global health. The goal of these service projects is to help students gain firsthand experience in dealing with pressing global health issues. All of the service projects are located either in Moshi or a neighboring rural village, and each student is placed with a fellow Cornell student. Some of the opportunities have a strong healthcare component, while others are more focused on community development. Examples of past service projects include shadowing doctors in a rural hospital setting, teaching and working with students in a home for street children, formulating dietary guidelines for local orphanages, working at a center for children with disabilities, working with the Network Against Female Genital Mutilation, and teaching at a school in a rural village.
