Volunteer Opportunities at Samanvai

For over a decade, a group of volunteers have worked to assist the visually impaired. Samanvai was born when these volunteers realized that they could be more successful in helping those with multiple disabilities in a more organized form. We believe that volunteers can make a difference in the lives of differently disabled children and young people. We have a number of opportunities for volunteers who are interested in supporting our vision by contributing time, money, or encouragement to students.

Money

Samanvai is empowered by the vision to change the world for disabled people by creating equal opportunities and societal status. An important part of this vision, however, is having the resources to make these dreams come true. To fulfill our goals at Samanvai, we need financial support from donors. Interested donors can contribute monetary or material donations (which includes technology, software and other infrastructure). All checks can be made payable to Samanvai Society. Please visit our contact page for our mailing address and directions.

Time

We are desperately in need of volunteers at the Samanvai Center to write and supervise exams, record audio materials for classes, and to provide support in teaching Braille math, physics, chemistry, social studies, accounting, and other subjects in the tutorials program. We also need support during field trips and on other such occasions.

Samanvai wants to provide educational materials for students in various schools and colleges, so we need volunteers to record books in our recording studio.

Encouragement

Our students need exposure to activities that help them gain confidence. Typically, most of the students lack proper exposure to the outside world due to their isolation and lack of education. Many of these students have not participated in sports and other activities. Samanvai aims to provide for an inclusive education, career, and extracurricular opportunities for students with multiple disabilities. We strongly encourage people to talk to students on both a formal and or informal basis. These volunteers can teach the students about the many opportunities available to them and ultimately boost their confidence.

We need support from volunteers to make our vision come true. Interested volunteers can register with us to receive notification about when there is an opportunity to get involved. We try to match your interests with available opportunities and needs. Please fill out this short online enrollment form to tell us about your past or present volunteer activities and your interests in the field of disability. We use this application to assess how best we can incorporate you into our work. We understand that many people lack email and Internet access, so we provide printed applications in our office. Please see our contact pagefor a map and directions. Volunteers can come to the Samanvai office, where we will be glad to assist you with filling out the form. We will add your information to our volunteers email list and phone book. We only email or call registered volunteers when there is an event, new project inauguration, or any function in Samanvai. Please read our privacy policy for more details on how we protect your information. You may also contact us to learn how to support the students. All questions and emails should be directed to info@samanvai.org. We wish you good luck in volunteering!
