Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps Volunteer Abroad Program

Check out the opportunity to work with Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps in Ghana, Honduras, and India! Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps volunteer abroad program is available year-round, and it’s not too late to participate this winter, spring or summer!  Watch a 5-minute video that features past Unite For Sight Global Impact Fellows who share their stories.

Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Fellows are students and professionals who are interested in public health, international development, medicine, or social entrepreneurship. Fellows support, assist, and learn from Unite For Sight’s talented local partner doctors who have provided care to more than 2.1 million patients living in poverty during the past decade, including nearly 95,000 sight-restoring surgeries. The local doctors are social entrepreneurs who are addressing complex public health issues, and Fellows gain a comprehensive understanding about the complexities and realities of delivering quality healthcare in resource-poor settings.

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

  • is a healthcare delivery organization that also offers immersive global health opportunities for students and professionals;
  • directly teaches the importance of supporting and assisting local professionals in their own social ventures to eliminate disparities in their communities and countries;
  • develops comprehensive training materials in cultural competency, ethics, and global health best practices to prepare its Fellows for a high-impact and immersive experience.
