Education Saves Lives is a Leamington-based charity. Our vision is a world where the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities are equipped with the key facts that can give them more control over their own health, and protect them from threats to their health and lives.
We create interactive audio-visual lessons about some of the world’s biggest health and life threats, which are then recorded in local languages so that all communities can access the information, whatever their level of education. We then work with a wide range of partners to distribute the lessons online and on DVD
Education Saves Lives are looking for students who would like to get research experience by linking them with established NGOs, grass root organisations, Government organisations mainly in Africa and Asia who would find their interactive DVDs useful. They are also always looking for people to translate and record the lessons they currently have.
Students interested in helping can almost always work at home/on campus and fit it in around your course work.
When travelling to Leamington is needed, expenses will be paid by the organisation.
They are a very flexible organisation and do not require a regular time commitment from volunteers.
They are looking for volunteers who speak an African, Asian or Eastern European language as your mother tongue.
