SHARE TIME AND SKILLS!
Although Power of a Nickel provides medical care to the underserved, there are many non medical opportunities and needs as well. We would love to dialog with you on how you might help with our global outreach trips in Nicaragua, Uganda, India, Vietnam, Belize, Ukraine, Peru, Greece, Mexico and Philippines. Each in-country organization with whom we partner has different needs – clean water access, legal issues, building needs, educational support – the list is often endless. We take great pride in being able to match talents and skills to the needs of the communities in addition to our medical efforts. If interested in sharing your talents and time, being a part of our team, and experiencing a truly rewarding service trip, please email [email protected].
If serving on an international team, there are many things you can help with right in your own home…..Here are some examples:
- Our teams provide health education to the students in several primary schools in various countries. We need “storyboards” … short stories to capture the attention of the primary school children. We take a powerpoint and have it printed on large boards to be able to read/show the students. If you are interested, we can share some of the “storyboards” we have used.
- Writing skills can really be used to tell stories about some of our encounters. If you have a knack for writing – we can use you.
- Brochure writing for our various projects. Familiarity with word processing and booklet making would make our lives here at the home base so much easier.
- Fabricating treatment tables that can be taken on the airplane as checked luggage (weight and size limits). We presently use anything from benches to beds to provide care.
