Our Initiatives Detail

Seva Summers

Seva – a Sanskrit word that means ‘selfless service’ is the inherent human quality that moves us to empathize with others and this internship with AarogyaSeva: Global Health Volunteer Alliance will give you an opportunity to do just that.

Generally, an internship consists of an exchange of services for experience between the student and an organization. Students can also use an internship to determine if they have an interest in a particular career, create a network of contacts, or gain school credit.

These Internships are open to high school students, college or university students and post-graduate adults from both India and abroad. The areas of internship include Medicine, science, law, management, business, media and mass communications, technology and advertising. The different types of internships include Work experience positions, including shadowing, research internships as well as virtual internships. These are unpaid voluntary positions lasting 4 weeks or longer.

All the internship programs are co-conceived methodically by the participants under the guidance of their mentor Dr. Dayaprasad G Kulkarni – a medical doctor, public health enabler, entrepreneur, artist and development consultant. There are a host of mentors and faculty in the team.
