Dear Gustavus students, I am a former Gustie from 1982. I do what I do because of a visit to Tanzania during a J-term while at Gustavus. I am now trying to eliminate emerging incurable malaria from SE Asia. We also want to begin to tackle the root cause of malaria, poverty.
We are currently seeking committed student volunteers to teach English by Skype to young adults in Vietnam to help them improve their opportunities in life (to reduce poverty). We have a team of 5 dedicated volunteers developing on a self-learning program now (apps and watching movies). Your role will be to motivate, coach and provide opportunity to for real verbal communication with a native English speaker.
Using digital technology we hope to take this approach to scale in areas where people can benefit. We plan to be ready to start in about 8-10 weeks. We seek highly dedicated individuals who are willing to participate at least 2 hours per week for at least 3 months to pilot test the program. I am a retired US Army doctor who spend most of my career at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research.
We have just started a new NGO called “Consortium for Health Action.” Please see our website at ConsortiumHA.org. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer English teacher, intern, or in other areas, please go to the join us tab and then on the bottom right click the green Join us link to complete the form.
We are hoping this can potentially be a life-changing experience for you, as the Tanzania trip was for me. Please help us spread the word about this opportunity!
