Any individual willing to serve our Foundation’s cause can become a volunteer.
The volunteer acts as an agent for the Foundation and helps in disbursing funds to the visually impaired students. This process needs them to collect application forms from the colleges, to interview the students to assess their eligibility, to ensure receipt of funds by the colleges/ students and obtaining receipts for the same. In short, they have to be guardians to the visually impaired students.
The Foundation only needs their time and commitment to ensure proper disbursement of sponsorships. They can be either full time or part time depending upon their time availability. The actual expenses incurred by volunteers, up to a reasonable extent, are reimbursed by the Foundation.
A Mentor can be either a donor or a volunteer, who makes a long-term commitment towards the progress and development of a visually impaired student or a group of them. This means that the mentor needs to be in touch with the students throughout their graduation, counselling them whenever needed. The relationship between the mentor and the students will be for a longer term, going beyond college education and employment.
