Does anyone fancy a holiday with a purpose in India?
HHi supports two special needs units in South India. Asha Kiran Ashram, in the countryside of Tamil Nadu, is the longer established, having opened its doors to 15 children in 2010. It now caters for about 50 children with a variety of disabilities. Following on from the success of this project, we now support a fledgeling special needs unit at Kalathara, near Nedumangad in Kerala, which is developing rapidly. Both of these projects have asked us if we can help them by sending out occupational and speech therapists who can treat the children and share best practice with our Indian partners.
This would suit OT or speech therapy students wanting to practice their skills, someone recently retired, or anyone else with either of these skills who wants to make a difference where it will really be appreciated. We can provide simple accommodation; living in India is cheap, but you would need to provide your own airfare.
