Elective International is an organization which aims to bridge connections on a global level, merging health care awareness within the developing and developed worlds. We provide customized health care Internships/placements in Kenya, Tanzania, Malaysia, India, Indonesia & Nepal. Through our individualized programs within resource- limited settings, we strive to challenge your hands-on skills, problem-solving capacity, creativity, initiative and at times, your philosophy of medicine.
Elective International offer a life-changing opportunity to experience medicine in a manner every health care professional who wishes to make a difference needs to. Our mandate means we take our many obligations seriously, first among them being to provide students with the most enriching experiences. Our goal as an organization is to effect positive change in peoples’ lives. Through elective placement, both visiting students and the communities they help benefit enormously. We place concerted efforts to ensure participants spend time helping out with HIV/AIDS infected children, orphans, volunteer feeding camps, medical camps etc. Part of participant fees charged goes toward active financial support of the health needs of these communities.
Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! Elective International has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.
With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success.

Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.
Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!
Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
