VOLUNTEERING

Volunteering for Udhavi


In the absence of a formal system in place to provide emotional care and support for senior citizens, it is important to build a community-based support system. Udhavi aims to do this by pairing motivated volunteers with senior citizens in their neighborhoods who require companionship and support.

Udhavi is always looking for additional volunteers of all age groups who are willing to spare a few hours a week to provide companionship, support and help for the elderly living in their area. We would like prospective volunteers to be able to set aside time for at least two to three visits per month, each visit typically taking about one and a half hours.

If you are interested in volunteering for Udhavi, please download the registration form, fill and scan or courier to the following along with a passport size photograph.

Above all, it is total commitment from the volunteers that we are looking for.

Some of the typical activities of volunteers would be:

  1. Companionship/Support
  2. Social/Recreation
  3. Home Management
  4. Information and Advocacy
  5. Teaching / Training
  6. Safety audit

New volunteers will be given a detailed induction after which they would accompany the senior volunteers on a few visits before they are ready to go on visits by themselves or with new recruits.
