Founded in 2000, Elective Africa is a leading organizer of medical volunteering, educational, gap, and expedition trips to Africa.
For over 12 years, we have been working with communities and institutions in our program destinations to provide our program participants with a unique opportunity for volunteering in projects and medical elective and clinicical rotation trips that meet four key hurdles:
Our programs cover a wide range of areas such as medical electives and volunteering, community development, gap trips, learning trips and expeditions, school trips, safaris and tours, and mountain treks. Learning trips cover subject areas such as medicine, music and arts, education and teaching, languages, among others.
Regardless of the program, all our programs ensure an immense amount of hands on experience, meaningful project work, cultural immersion and fun.
At the highest level of the organization, we are located in your placement destination hence able to give you a very rich and secure learning experience. We have strong relationships with the partner hospitals where we place our students and we work closely with the medical professionals in these hospitals to ensure a structured placement for our students at these hospitals. This is in addition to the fact that we are present where you go to, we have designed our programs ourselves, we house you in our own residence, and we are highly responsive to your needs while on our program.
We know the program professionals and the institutions we place you in. For example, for the medical program, we personally know the doctors, and are familiar with the hospitals.
Because we locate a significant part of our support and administration in destination country, we are able to offer competitive rates relative to some similarly structured programs
