In July 2013, the PDMDS initiated a student volunteer program, wherein interested students of various colleges in Mumbai, were given the opportunity to interact with members of the PDMDS.
PDMDS anticipates more volunteers in the future to further carry on various activities. At present the volunteers give hands – on assistance to the core team during the various group sessions, whether it is Physiotherapy sessions, or creative sessions of origami and dance.
Further, their services extend to one – on – one sharing interactions with PwPs, who so wish to, in the comfort of their homes.
The Volunteer program also allows for a window to the creative ideas of the young blood. In this regard, the B.M.M. students of St. Xaviers College, Mumbai, have helped the team strategize marketing and awareness programs.
The Volunteer Program also provides scope to those volunteers who wish to work on the administrative aspects of an organization, as well as assist during research.
In the future, we hope to increase the scope and reach of our voluntary services to more areas that would allow volunteers to learn and have a life-enriching experience.
