Education Workshops

Mobile Education Workshops are week-long Service Learning Trips geared toward students interested in teaching impoverished communities in developing countries. This trip offers opportunities for individuals to make a meaningful contribution to international education in Lima, Peru. 

Education WorkshopNot Just a Mission Trip

Our Mobile Education Workshops go beyond treating symptoms. We educate patients on health and self-care topics to raise awareness, break stigmas, and provide patients with tools to lead healthier lives. We also work hand in hand with local communities to provide educational opportunities for children at certain sites like our MED Center for Primary Education in Lima, Peru. Students will work side by side with local professionals on education initiatives that are active in the communities year-round.

The MEDLIFE Education Workshop Difference

Education Workshop

Bringing Education to the Poor

Our education workshops are held in impoverished communities to provide information on a variety of topics – from dental care to women’s healthcare – and to encourage attendance at our Mobile Clinics.

Education Workshop

On-Site Local Professionals

Our education initiatives are spearheaded by local educators who speak the language, understand local systems, and provide culturally sensitive classes and workshops.

Education Workshop

Working Hand in Hand with Current Systems

Rather than building a parallel educational system, we work with government programs already in place. For example, in Lima, Peru the government has a designated education program called CUNAMAS for children from 1 to 2 years. This program provides food, childcare, and education to children in low-income communities. MEDLIFE works with the existing program to provide quality education opportunities.

Education Workshop

Permanent Community Education Structures

In an effort toward sustainable development, MEDLIFE created the MED Center for Primary Education. This permanent structure in the community of Union Santa Fe is the first step of a large scale MED Center that will offer a variety of educational services to community members – from daycare centers to English classes.

Not only was I able to participate in a week long Mobile Clinic, shadowing doctors of all types of specialties including pharmacy, dentistry, gynecology, and more, but I was also able to learn about the culture and visit incredible places.

One thing that I really loved about this trip was that MEDLIFE made sure that the volunteers got an understanding of the complexity of issues that lead to underprivileged people in communities outside of the main city

Whether it was basketball with the local kids, assisting the doctors, talking with families, building washrooms, holding babies, or spending time with the people who were on the SLT with me, this was an amazing opportunity that I would do over and over again.

Our family had the privilege of participating in multiple trips with Nick [founder] and his amazing staff. Their expertise made the trips unforgettable while instilling in my boys the fundamentals of good character: selflessness, compassion, and empathy.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
