Become an Angel of Change - Organ Donation Ambassador

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 for all you interested volunteers to become Organ Donation Ambassadors (ODA). Each one of you will be taken through a customized training module. The objective is to enable you to become proficient enough to be able to undertake awareness initiatives on organ donation amongst different audiences.

On one hand, lack of awareness and the stigma surrounding the subject is one of the main reasons for India's low organ donation rates. On the other hand, volunteers such as you, and your desire for social action can be a great catalyst for change. Your pro-activeness and willingness to try out new ideas make you an ideal person to join hands with us to support organ donation.

A duly sensitized and trained ambassador can bring a significant change in the perception of people towards organ donation. As an ambassador, you will be trained to communicate about organ donation and encourage the public to pledge. You will make real difference to the lives of critically ill persons suffering from organ failure, and their families. We welcome all to be a part of this “Organ Donation Ambassadors” volunteer training initiative.

About the training
This is an online training. The volunteers would have to undergo training and commit to activities supporting organ donation, through the following 3 modules -

MODULE 1: 4-hour, learn-at-your-pace Online Certificate Course on Organ Donation - "Gift of Life"

This online course is for the benefit of those seeking to gain knowledge about organ donation and transplantation. Through this course, one can learn and understand basic concepts, legal and ethical aspects, religion and organ donation, process and importance of organ donation. We are charging course fees of Rs.500/- for the same. The volunteers will receive an online certificate on completion.

MODULE 2: 2-hour activity-based, interactive sessions on Zoom

You will be introduced to activities that will help enable deeper empathy and appreciation of the cause. This module will also include interactions with the experts in the field, organ recipients and donor family members.

MODULE 3: Activities to raise awareness and funds

You are now ready for action. You can independently, or in small groups, take up awareness initiatives such as public education webinars, surveys and social media campaigns. Upon completion of one such activity, you will receive the "Organ Donation Ambassador" certificate.

Additionally, you will also get a chance to be featured in our e-newsletter. Those of you who undertake unique initiatives will be invited in our special webinars.

All theories, ppts, animated videos explaining brain death were very easy to understand. The interactive session with experts and different stakeholder in organ donation and transplantation cleared all my doubts. Read More

Writing a Thank You letter and Ask the Experts session was a good way of making me understand different aspects of donation. Dr. Hemal’s enumeration of different campaigns on organ donation was an eye opener. I am very much interested in counseling and public awareness.

          The Gift of life' Online eLearning course was brilliant and well curated. The Module 2 - Interactive sessions were nicely done in times of COVID19 pandemic. Good to see volunteers taking many steps to spread awareness. An interactive way of learning with a good delivery of design and technology in the course material would be really helpful.

          Ms. Preeti

          'Gift of life' Online eLearning course, was really helpful as it cleared all my doubts regarding Organ donation from scratch. In the Interactive session, we met a lot of new people, some of them were organ donors too, listening to them was so encouraging yet blissful. Their experience taught me a lot of things. Organ donation is a less explored topic for the general public we all need to find out ways in which we can spread out the message of "Organ Donation and Saving lives".

It was really very informative and I have understood the blessing and the pain of during the organ donation. The specialists have done a great job in the session. I got to learn many new things that I'm completely unaware before the session. My Awareness Initiative has given me a chance to present myself before my friends and loved ones. The audience really liked and appreciated the cause. I'm really glad that I conducted the awareness program and cleared their doubts.

The interactive session was useful in understanding the complexity and ethical challenges in Organ Donation and Transplantation. I heard about a liver donation story of father to daughter narrated by Mr. SivaRamaKrishna Pakala, this really moved me. My awareness initiative gave me confidence to speak to the public though I needed to practice it many times before going ahead.
