Progetto Uomo Rishilpi International Onlus supports the development of Rishis, outcastes, and marginalized people in Bangladesh through development cooperation programs. Rishilpi has been operating in Bangladesh since 1977 for health, education, income generation, prevention of child marriage and women’s empowerment. There are two categories of volunteers: long-term volunteers (over 3 months), who often come to work in the chosen profession, eg. Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Special Educator, Assistive Device Specialist, and many other fields. Short-term volunteers (under 3/6 months) collaborate according to their skills and attitude in any department of Rishilpi. Usually, a volunteer will have special interests or skills that lead him to work in a specific area. However, the need to be flexible and use your own initiative is very important.
Programs: Health and rehabilitation program; Education; Water treatment. You will have lots of meaningful time to discover Bengali culture and tradition.

Note about the volunteer work and other expectations 📝
Volunteers work according to their skills and aptitudes in any department in Rishilpi. Usually, a volunteer will have special interests or skills that lead them to work in a specific area, especially in the fields of health (including interaction with people with disabilities) and education. The activities of the volunteers of about 5 hours per day are aimed at supporting the work of the permanent staff, e.g. they will be involved in the management of daily activities and small maintenance work. At the school and kindergarten, they are expected to participate in educational and/or play activities involving the children. At the health centre, volunteers will mainly be involved in following our young patients in their daily activities, proposing and organizing games and supporting them in their studies.
