When you support the the Global Health Project in Dharamsala, you’ll address healthcare and health education needs across the community. By working in partnership with a variety of organizations, including special education schools, women’s groups, and anganwadis (day care centers), your help will provide basic medical screening and health and hygiene education to the most vulnerable members of the community.
Overview of the tasks and time commitment needed from the participant.
All volunteers can choose their length of stay in a program, for between 1 and 12 weeks. Volunteer work takes place each weekday morning for 4-5 hours, and Cultural & Learning Activities are provided most afternoons. These activities provide unique insights into the local community and culture, and include language lessons, reflection sessions, excursions to local points of interest, guest speakers, cooking lessons, and dance classes, among others. Volunteers have free time available most evenings and all weekends to explore the local community and country.
Room & Board (any housing, food, and transportation included).
Volunteers will live in the beautiful Dharamsala Home-Base, a safe and comfortable family home in this welcoming community. The Home-Base provides plenty of common areas to engage with fellow volunteers, private spaces for relaxation and reflection, and shared bedrooms with between 2 and 6 volunteers per room. A full in-country staff, led by an experienced Country Director, provide support and guidance to volunteers and are available 24/7. Healthy and delicious meals are included, and prepared by the in-country cooks, along with unlimited safe drinking water. Ground transportation to and from the airport, the volunteer work assignment, and all Cultural & Learning Activities is included and provided by our staff drivers in our vehicles.
Orientation and training (supervision and preparation the participant will receive).
Following a comprehensive training with your Program Specialist (online and through phone/email), volunteers are provided with a full orientation upon arrival in-country. This orientation, led by the Country Director and in-country staff, includes guidance on effective volunteering for your work assignment, a crash language lesson, a guided tour of the local community, important health and safety information, and an introduction to the Home-Base, your supportive in-country staff, and your fellow volunteers. Our orientation doesn’t end with just one day, however; the in-country staff are on hand throughout your experience and provide structured and unstructured reflection sessions throughout your time.
Volunteers will be guided through the preparation process by a dedicated Program Specialist, who’s also a volunteer alumni. Volunteers will arrange their own airport transportation to arrive at the airport in Dharamsala, India on the volunteer start date, and will be welcomed by the in-country staff and transported to the Home-Base to start the volunteer experience. Volunteers should plan to depart on the end date of their program, which is the last Saturday of the experience.
