Veterinary project in India - An Overview   (published in India)

November 11, 2011 by   Comments(0)

Veterinary project is one of the emerging projects in India Destination. Most of the volunteers do not have the exact idea of how the Veterinary project here in India looks like. Here I gave you an exact explanation of how the veterinary project in India will be.

As a first point, its really very important for me to explain that – the animals you look after will include cattle especially goat and cow. Relatively the number of dogs and chicken will be less than the cattle.

Usually the volunteers will gain their general veterinary practice in two of the places namely Virudhunagar and Madurai. In a typical day of the volunteer work, the morning session will be at the Government Hospital and the evening session will be at the private Veterinary clinic. During these sessions, volunteers will be shadowing the Vet with plenty of scope for observation and some hands-on work. Depending on your experience and confidence, you may be able to participate in basic and simple procedures under supervision, such as pregnant diagnosis, artificial insemination etc. This will also depend on whether the Vet feels you have the capabilities to take part in these activities.

At times the work might be a bit slow, as it only becomes busy when animals are brought in. During these periods, there will be a variety of different jobs that you’ll need to assist. Some of these will not be directly related to working with the animals, such as attending to the upkeep and cleaning of the premises, or helping out with Reception.

In other words, the volunteers have to be mentally prepared to do anything and everything that needs to be done during the time they’re there.

Once in every two weeks, volunteers will be invited to attend the Veterinary Camp which will be organised by Projects Abroad. During these camps, the volunteers will be taken to any of the rural villages in Madurai with the veterinarian as Team head and the volunteers will be assisting him. These camps play a vital role during the project period. Because the number of cattle attending the day ranges between 50  to 150 and so the volunteer might get hands-on experience during any of these camps.

In addition to the above, Projects Abroad India volunteers will be made to observe the Animal surgery which includes ABC [Animal Birth Control] surgery procedures too.

There is a great opportunity during which volunteers can learn a lot from experts of veterinary field and about how they work in a culture that is very different to what they're used to. In addition, they will also gain new skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.

There is again a project going to be added to the list of projects here in India. Its been none other than Building Project.

Its a long time wish for Projects Abroad which has proved it now. So volunteers gain another option in their list too.

We are hoping to start the building project in some orphanages or a community development which can eventually be a cultural exchange program. Our team in India is really busy in looking for a best place for our volunteers to work with.

So, India is ready to welcome our new project helpers with much more enthusiasm ever before.

Our Model Farm network expands...   (published in India)

Its been nice to know that our Model Farm network getting expanded continuously.

We could remember the first day when we met the local villagers in Chinnupatti and explained about the Model Farm. For the villagers there, it was certainly a very new concept. They were also surprised to hear that the foreigners will be staying at Chinnupatti right to their next door and serve them.

But as the days rolled by, there were frequent communication between the volunteers and villagers.Even though, the communication is in the form of sign language - both the volunteers and the villagers they enjoy this life during most of their time.

Again making the volunteers to work in a particular farmers' field added more surprise to them. Some of the quite doubted about our volunteer's strength too. But now the situation changed ultimately. After seeing the wonderful harvest from their field, the farmers are coming forward to change their crop field to a better one.

In this way, the recent number of addition counts to 6 farmers [who were interested in laying the new Kitchen Garden] and the other two farmers were interested to add some new crops to their field.

Now our Model Farm network starts expanding and soon will reach its ultimate goal of serving these rural villages.
