MAKE A LASTING DIFFERENCE

Research shows that nutrition education is one of the best interventions to help prevent and combat malnutrition. Education is key to success. Your time teaching nutrition education will be able to influence and enhance their perceptions. You will be making their lives (and those around them) better. You'll spend quality time playing with children and cooking with women, and create relationships that will last a life-time.

VOLUNTEER WITH MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS & BUILD RESUME

Every humanitarian trip NEEM goes on will be under the supervision of multiple Registered Dietitians. Often, there will be other medical professionals who have joined our team (ie. Physicians, Registered Nurses, Dentists, Psychologists). This experience is very beneficial for those interested in a career in the medical field, as well as making connections. This experience will also help you stand out on a job or grad school application, and boost up your resume.

FIND YOURSELF WHILE HELPING OTHERS

Your unique personality and strengths are needed by both individuals we are serving and your teammates. We are volunteering in countries that may include, but are not limited to food poverty, lack of education, low socioeconomic status, and food deserts. You will be put out of your comfort zone. These are the moments that will shape you! You will also be put in situations where you are working closely with local people. You will be able to act as a source of happiness and education to them. Through this experience your eyes will be opened, and you will be able to recognize some of your strengths and weaknesses.

EXPLORE & UNDERSTAND A COUNTRY

NEEM prides itself on using a sustainable approach as we volunteer in each country. Extensive research is done about each country (and cities) as we learn the best way to serve them. Before and during your volunteer trip you will learn about the history of the city, culture and social issues, educational systems, and common motivators, religions, and food practices. Volunteering takes places half the day, the other half is left to explore, learn about the culture, and travel on excursions.
