Area: UttarakhandOurs is an organization in North India that provides health care services to underprivileged women and children who reside in slums and villages. We are located in Dehradun, approximately 6 hours north of Delhi. This is an NGO that aims to empower women to increase their ability to make informed family planning and reproductive health choices. We provide reproductive health care services that will enhance the health and quality of life of the women, girls and adolescents in our target areas. Our programs address maternal, child, reproductive health and new-born health, as well as gaps in family planning and acute care needs. This program has been operational for 3 years and provided health care to over 70,000 women and children in the first year of operations. We accept volunteers from all backgrounds. Depending on the background, volunteers, will be asked to help in the field (health camps) and check vitals, help in registration, do lab tests or help in the education classes. Volunteers can also work in the office, doing administrative tasks, such as reviewing reports, contacting donors, data entry, writing letters, working on the homepage, organizing events and so on, depending on what activities are going on when the volunteers are here. Some volunteers have worked with the staff members to teach them english and improve their writing skills. Volunteers can also accompany staff to the high schools (if they are in session) for the adolescent reproductive health classes we teach in the schools. If the volunteers have a background in health care or health education, they would help evaluate the health care and health education. This can range from infection control audits to medication management. Accommodation is provided (but there are dogs). Food is NOT included.
