VOLUNTEER MEDICAL AND HEALTH SERVICES TRAINING
The NeuroMuscular Taping Institute has been organizing volunteer projects in developing countries for several years, providing a high level of specialization in the rehabilitation area, using a simple, effective and low-cost methods. The realization of tese projects is only possible thanks to a collaboration of local organizations, which already operate in the area. Each project includes an initial training course of 4 days, followed by tutoring and clinical verification and training by the NMT Institute team during the following days. The duration of each project varies from around 10 to 20 days. All organizational and logistical expenses are generally covered by the Institute. The expenses instead are covered by the volunteers: air ticket, visa, possible mandatory vaccinations. All other costs are covered by the NMT Institute.
Volunteers are required to have a spirit of adaptation, ability to work in groups, willingness to pass on their valuable treatment KNOW-HOW and enthusiasm to participate in the project.
Questioning is not easy for anyone. We believe in “lifelong learning”, we wondered if the opportunities for civil and social engagement and knowledge of new cultures offered by international volunteering can not be an effective tool to promote and stimulate your “active global citizenship”. When you choose to take part in a volunteer project, you need to be sure to start with the right predisposition of mind, be able to accept challenges that may meet along the way often with unexpected difficulties. You must be able to get involved leaving your own comfort zone and leaving home any kind of prejudice, remaining open to welcome new knowledge.
