How to Volunteer?
All individuals interested in volunteering for CDRS projects in Pakistan should contact CDRS as soon as possible to discuss their available dates for working at the CDRS office or field medical facilities. Due to limited funding, no stipend will be offered and CDRS cannot pay for international or domestic air travel.
Interns are required throughout the year for project management related work. Interns will get valuable experience with practical situations involving field work and interaction with people from different backgrounds and realities. A lot of experience would be gained regarding administrative and management work along with the exposure. Interns are required for the main office in Islamabad and at CDRS Project locations in many areas of Pakistan.
