Sight Program Volunteers

Mentoring and training to build local capacity

Volunteer professionals greatly enhance the work of Seva's Sight Programs around the world.

In each of the countries where Seva works, we focus on building the capacity of local program partners to deliver excellent eye care services.  This is the key to building sustainable programs that can take root and grow. Seva has benefited from volunteers with a range of experiences and skills, including:

  • Ophthalmologists
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Marketing/ Communications professionals
  • Management training
  • Research methodology training
  • Business development consulting

Volunteer projects almost always involve an element of training. Seva works with volunteers who can:

  • Help train and mentor local staff seeking to improve eye care programs and service delivery
  • Make a lasting impact- we prefer volunteers who can make longer commitments or who can volunteer a few weeks every year

While we welcome applications year round, Seva is only able to develop volunteer opportunities that meet our program partners' specific needs, so opportunities may be limited.

Seva is unable to cover any volunteer expenses, such as travel costs, lodging, per diems, or remuneration of any kind.  Our volunteers cover their own expenses, and we consider this to be an in-kind donation to Seva.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form on this page so Seva can assess if your skills and experience match the needs of our program partners. If an international opportunity is not available, we encourage you to consider another rewarding volunteer position with our organization.

Thanks again for your interest in volunteering with Seva!
