ATMA is glad to announce the initiation of Volunteer ATMA Program (VAP). Volunteering has been the backbone of ATMA ever since its foundation. ATMA members are already making a difference in our own small way here as well as back home. The success of this program relies on people like you, who are volunteering for the cause of improving the health of the underprivileged.
Not to mention all the benefits that volunteering brings in, VAP volunteers get to volunteer in an organization that they are interested in. VAP volunteers get to learn new skills and also offer their expertise to the ATMA PRC approved projects. In addition a letter of reference will be provided by the ATMA president as well as the ATMA approved projects director.
ATMA members themselves who visit TamilNadu for a vacation or who stay for few months. ATMA members’ kids or grandkids who have wanted to serve the underserved or who wish to gain experience from working in PRC approved projects. VAP volunteers do not have to be ATMA members as the application for VAP is open to members as well as non-members. Ultimately people who will benefit the most are the underserved, rural community or the organization itself where the VAP volunteers will serve.
There is no time limit for being a VAP volunteer. It can be anywhere from one day to one year or more. Even 10 minutes spent at these organizations offering your expertise is a volunteering in itself. But reasonably a VAP volunteer is expected to be volunteering for a minimum of one month.
