Rural areas grapple with all manner of health problems; the people not only lack information and knowledge on how they can prevent diseases but have challenges accessing quality health care.
As a volunteer in India, through engaging in health education, you will be helping the rural community improve its health standards. Volunteers work primarily with women and children delivering health awareness education in basic first aid, sanitation and nutrition – at different stages of development including pregnancy. One does not have to be trained medical personnel to offer awareness information but to be involved in treatment it is a requirement that a volunteer produce evidence of training and working in a health care setting.
Working as a volunteer in health education equips the community with skills and knowledge that they can use to prevent diseases. You will be contributing to a healthy community, and as they say a healthy society is a prosperous community.
You will travel with English speaking guides to local villages and communities to provide advice and information for women and families. That might include offering breastfeeding suggestions, general health tips, and just about everything else. We will assign a project that meets the needs of the community at the time of your arrival.
