Gearing up for the 2010 Summer Public Service Program

Posted in 2010 Summer Public Service Program, Message from the Board by kashmircorps on June 9, 2010

Thank you for visiting our blog! We would like to remind you that we are hosting our fourth annual Summer Public Service Program this month in Kashmir!

And as we areĀ in our fourth year, we thank you for your support and encouragement throughout. Since 2006, we have matched nearly 30 volunteers and engaged passionate individuals in Kashmir to promote service and perform rigorous research.

Since 2006, KashmirCorps Volunteers have provided free anemia screenings for rural women, researched the impact of climate change in Kashmir, built a microfinance model for low-income fisherwomen on the Jhelum riverbank, and educated Kashmiri women on breast health and administered breast cancer screenings among other projects.

Throughout the summer, you can follow our dynamic Volunteers as they engage in innovative service projects and contribute to improving the livelihoods of underserved Kashmiris. More information coming soon on our Volunteers and the projects they will be gearing up for this summer. Stay tuned!
