Thanks to the rapid responses of you, the readers of this blog, our web team and other Sarvodaya offices are currently inundated with offers of volunteer help. We have long lists of such offers from the people who answer the phones here as well.
For that reason, we have set up an online Volunteer Forum for those who wish to make themselves available. It should provide an opportunity for Sarvodaya and other relief organizations to call on volunteers both immediately and in the future as rebuilding and rehabilitation continue.
Also, forum users can contact each other to organize independent action. Please let us know if you need further information from us, but at this moment our phone and email response capabilities are stretched thin. We are in the process of expanding our organizational infrastructure to take advantage of your generous offers of help.
For international volunteer opportunities, please contact our overseas volunteer coordinator at [email protected] (be aware that right now he cannot provide extensive information as he is centrally engaged in relief deployment). The International Volunteers Unit will be planning future volunteer assistance programs, however at the moment we are unable to make arrangements for overseas emergency volunteer workers.
