Medical internships in India for 16-18 year olds

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

We are committed to reducing carbon emissions on all of our projects. Here’s how:

• For each participant that goes away with us, we plant a tree in Africa with our charity partners Tree Aid
• Where food is provided, it is locally produced and sourced, reducing food miles, supporting local industry and minimising single-use plastic
• As a traveller you will learn about the importance of reducing our carbon footprint, both pre-departure and through your volunteer project
• Accommodation is close to the hospital site. Transport is by private vehicle, due to the age group, but transport is taken as a group therefore keeping emissions to a minimum
• Where possible, and without jeopardising safety or quality, transfers are done on a shared basis to reduce carbon emissions

Environment

Protecting the world
We are passionate about encouraging our travellers to be kind to the environment as they travel. Each participant receives advice about how to care for the environment whilst they are away. This includes water usage, how to avoid single use plastic, and electricity usage.

We insist that all participants bring their own water bottles when they travel with us, and clean free water is always available. We have even created a water bottle that can be purchased before departure and encourage people to use it at all stages of their journey including at the airport, on flights and whilst on their project. We are striving for all of our projects to be free of single use plastic.

Community

Cultural sensitivity:
We emphasise the importance of showing respect for local people and their customs in our briefing material. Interns receive a full orientation on arrival and receive 2 lectures, during their time in India, which covers aspects of Indian culture.

Participants will work alongside permanent staff, forming close bonds and getting an insight into real life in India. Our policy is to send people out in small groups or individually. This minimises the environmental and social impact that the participants have on the destination and helps them to integrate into the local community.

The coordinators on the ground are Indian and have real insight and knowledge about the country and the local area. Interns will gain real insight into life in India and will eat locally sourced food cooked authentically by an Indian cook. When eating out, local restaurants are supported and this helps to promote tourism to local businesses. All tour guides are local.
