Global Health Opportunity Abroad

Are you interested in volunteering abroad for one week, one month, or multiple months during the upcoming spring, summer, or fall months?  We very much hope to have an opportunity to work with you in Ghana, Honduras, or India!  Unite For Sight’s volunteer abroad program is available year-round, and it’s not too late to participate this spring and summer! Please feel free to forward this message to others who may be interested in participating as well.

Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps is an immersive global health volunteer and education experience for students and professionals who are interested in public health, international development, medicine, or social entrepreneurship.  Volunteers participate with and learn from Unite For Sight’s talented local partner doctors who have provided care to more than 1.9 million patients living in poverty, including nearly 90,000 sight-restoring surgeries. The local doctors are social entrepreneurs who are addressing complex public health issues, and volunteers gain a comprehensive understanding about the complexities and realities of global health.

Unite For Sight is the only organization in the world that:

  • is a healthcare delivery organization that also offers immersive global health education opportunities for students and professionals;
  • uses 100% of all donations and funds submitted to directly provide care for patients who are otherwise unable to access or afford care;
  • directly teaches the importance of supporting and assisting local professionals in their own social ventures to eliminate disparities in their communities and countries;
  • offers an opportunity to learn from local medical professionals about effective strategies to reach the hardest-to-reach patients in villages, slums, and refugee camps;
  • develops comprehensive training materials in cultural competency, ethics, and global health best practices to prepare its volunteers for a high-impact immersive experience.

Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you during the upcoming months!
