A friend of mine is currently trying to decide whether to take a six month sabbatical in India to work at Gwalior Children's Hospital on the Gwallior Project.
A leaflet was posted up in our department at work asking for nurses (and doctors and teachers) to give up a minimum of three weeks and go out to central India to help on a voluntary basis. The project is run as a Registered Charity (registered legitimately in the UK) but we cannot find any information that is verifying its existence. I know we sound cynical but the Charity asks for £400 in order to send her out there and we just feel uneasy about it.
My friend has heard that nurses from the US have worked there......can anyone out there tell us more?
Any one have any experience of working for a charity in India?
