Opening for a new AVSAR
A brief history
on the organization:
AVSAR, a not-for-profit program, strives to create
partnerships which utilize the worldwide resources of a "Global
India" to promote positive change and reform in "Domestic
India." AVSAR was started in July of 2003 by a 27-year old
Indian-American physician seeking to increase the momentum of healthcare reform
in the slums of Mumbai (
With a growing international audience, and its first group of passionate physician-volunteers and Public Health graduates already selected, AVSAR hopes to continue building upon its successes and reach its stated goal recruiting 500 volunteers on a yearly basis by July, 2008. The recruitment process is selective, but we work with organizations that inspire our volunteers. In return, our volunteers provide their time and professional skills during an experience of SERVICE in a field that THEY feel passionate about. Healthcare is just the beginning, and we will soon move into the fields of education, law, policy, fine arts, etc.
