Projects Abroad | India organised the veterinary camp for the animals at Poikarapatti...Our Veterinary volunteers took part in the camp and vaccinated the animals at the village.
The reason behind the camp is to help the village people in vaccinating and treating the domestic animals in the village which is not affordable by the village locals. About 300 animals got benefitted by the camp.
Our volunteers got an hands-on work experience in the areas of - vaccination, de-worming, priliminary diagnosis of pregnancy in cows and artificial insemination. In turn the local village people got benefitted by the camp.
Here comes the interesting and welcomeable announcement from Projects Abroad | India...All the volunteers who are all doing Care placement in India starting from the month of June will get a chance to attend the Cultural and Language Workshop as a part of their orientation procedure.
The reason behind this is - we(Projects Abroad India) found that these workshops will definetly help the volunteers a lot to mingle with the local community very well.These workshops gives a brief overview of the cultural things that has to be followed by the Volunteers during their stay in India. Also we teach you - the basic and necessary tamil words ingeneral.This helps the volunteers to move freely with the Children in their placement.
