Building a Brighter Future on #GivingTuesday

At Health Volunteers Overseas, our motto is “Transforming Lives through Education.” These are not words we use lightly. We are dedicated to fulfilling their promise by seeking not only to improve the availability and quality of health care for today’s patients but also to develop global health leaders who will define the future of health care in their countries.

This is why your support matters so much – for today and tomorrow.

Your contribution supports future leaders like Lenny Vasanthan, a rehabilitation provider from Vellore, India. HVO sponsored Mr. Vasanthan’s attendance at a training course where he gained new and essential skills and knowledge to provide better patient care.

The opportunity also transformed his understanding of his role as a health care provider:

“Earlier I used to treat people through trial and error. After the scholarship, I have learned to be accountable to all my patients… I look at things from a different perspective… a global perspective – on how the system works and how to use sophisticated and advanced techniques for the patients.”

Mr. Vasanthan’s experience also enhanced his leadership skills. He now serves as head of a rehabilitation clinic where he contributes to continuing professional development classes for staff and trainees at his institution. He is developing his research skills too, to advance knowledge and improve treatment plans for patients.

Your support has transformed Dr. Vasanthan’s professional trajectory and impacted the lives of his colleagues and their patients. 

Your support means that health care providers receive the education, and mentorship they need to provide safe, quality care to their patients. We strengthen health systems through education and training that can be passed on from one generation of health care providers to the next.

Your support helps us expand our impact, transforming lives now and for years to come. Here’s how you can help:

The future of global health is bright when individuals like you take action. Thank you.
