Angels of Change

World over, much good is attributed to the power of volunteering - for those who volunteer, those who are helped by volunteers and the community generally that benefits from the contribution of volunteers.

MOHAN Foundation has launched a unique program called “Angels of Change” in which selected volunteers are taken through a customized training module to enable them to undertake awareness initiatives on organ donation amongst various audiences.

The organ donation rates are abysmally low in India and one of the main reasons for this is the lack of awareness on the subject. Engaging volunteers – duly sensitized and trained as agents of change would be an effective way forward.

MOHAN Foundation is organising a Volunteer Training in June 2017 at our Chennai office. This will be done on all Saturdays (half day). We welcome all to be a part of this “Angels of Change” volunteer training initiative. The class size is limited to 30 only. After the training you are expected to conduct two public awareness talks or campaigns under the guidance of MOHAN Foundation staff as part of completion of the training.
