If you like our work and wish to join hands with us, we have an opportunity for you. You don’t need to necessarily have a medical background. We welcome anyone who is interested and has a vision and desire to help alleviate some of the issues our society faces. SAHI Youth Wing, a new programme initiated to incorporates young, socially conscious volunteers to offer their contribution in analysing data, event management, program evaluation and execution of new ideas that will lead to a better hearing society.
Wondering how this would work?
We will organize short meet-ups once in a while and have small group discussions where we all can come together and evaluate new ideas. We believe the more ideas tossed up for discussion the greater the value of the debate and the variety of potential solutions offered. We ask you to bring in your individual ideas and together we can create a better hearing society.
SAHI is now looking to collaborate with schools. The aim is to instill a sense of responsibility toward society and inculcate the spirit of volunteerism at a young age.
Once the schools collaborate with SAHI, yearlong activities will be conducted for the children. These activities include- awareness programmes, accompaning SAHI team to Rural camps, one to one interaction with the rural patients, inter school competitions, attend speech therapy sessions, watch live surgical operations and have the privilege of volunteering/interning at the hospital.
NRI Youth Wing:
SAHI has embarked on providing opportunity to concerned NRI youngsters to join SAHI “NRI Youth Wing”. As NRI youth volunteers, they get to participate in the rural medical camps conducted by SAHI for the children below 15 years during their visit to India. This will be a great opportunity to gain hands on experience to be part of how rural children with ear ailments are identified by SAHI at medical camp sites and how they are screened & tested by Audiologists & ENT surgeons. They also get to assist doctors and technicians in identifying patients for either non-invasive immediate treatment or for required surgeries in Apollo hospitals.
These socially conscious volunteers will also get to be involved in post-surgical counseling and therapies. With SAHI’s help, NRI students with academic interest in sciences and students thriving to pursue medical degrees themselves will find tremendous volunteering/internship opportunities during their planned visits to India.
In short this is a golden opportunity for NRI students to extend their support to the hearing impaired children in rural areas and also serves as a great learning experience.
