Unite For Sight: Global Health Volunteer Abroad Opportunity

http://www.uniteforsight.org/volunteer-abroad

Unite For Sight has been featured weekly on CNN International and in  
The New York Times

Unite For Sight is the world's leader in socially responsible,  
effective volunteering abroad. Unite For Sight's Global Impact Corps  
is an immersive global health experience for students and for  
professionals.  All volunteers participating in Unite For Sight's  
international programs are Global Impact Fellows.

What do students do as Global Impact Fellows? They participate daily  
with local ophthalmic nurses, local optometrists, and local  
ophthalmologists to eliminate patient barriers to care and to  
facilitate comprehensive year-round eye care for patients living in  
extreme poverty.  They assist with patient education, visual acuity  
screening, patient intake, distributing the glasses and medication  
prescribed by the local eye doctors, data compilation and analysis,  
and other necessary support tasks. Through hands-on, structured  
training, volunteers gain a comprehensive understanding about best  
practices in community eye health, global health, and international  
development.  Global Impact Fellows gain skills and are nurtured to  
become new leaders in global health, and they receive a Certificate in  
Global Health & Program Delivery.  Additionally, Global Impact Fellows  
may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an optional program for  
volunteers interested in pursuing global health research.

Locations of Year-Round Program Delivery:
  (volunteer for 7 days, 20 days, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 10 weeks, or more)

? Accra and Kumasi Regions, Ghana
? Ashanti and Northern Regions, Ghana
? Varying Rural Villages, Ghana
? Tegucigalpa, Honduras
? Bihar, India
? Chennai, India
? New Delhi, India
? Orissa, India

Academic Credit Option: Many students choose to pursue the Unite For  
Sight program for academic credit and/or medical electives at their  
home institution.  We also encourage students to pursue research  
studies that contribute to knowledge about global eye care needs and  
solutions.  We work closely with students on both of these options.
