I need your support!
I am a registered participant in the OneVillage Chennai Community Service Project, a unique opportunity to do volunteer community development work in Chennai, India between July 26 and August 26, 2015.
We will be able to positively impact the self-esteem of orphans, help to empower marginalized women who have been victims of domestic violence and abuse, and we will help to provide solace to elders who have been abandoned by their families.
I will be working directly with PCVC (Prevention of Crime and Violence Against Women), an organization for women who have experienced domestic violence and abuse. This will involve working with the women in groups, and helping them to heal through social interaction as well as making some handicrafts. We will be working with a PCVC Social Worker who will be able to provide translation for our counseling skills in this setting. We will also provide some training for the PCVC staff on issues around supporting the women and self-care. In addition, we will also be assisting PCVC in writing a grant proposal for international funding.
My goal is to raise funds through pledges to support the cost of participating in the Chennai Community Service Project.
Thank you in advance for supporting me and the OneVillage Community Service Project!
