Propel your potential
Develop skills for driving social change
The Leprosy Mission Trust India’s (TLMTI) internship and volunteer programme is challenging, yet rewarding for those committed to social change and to upskill themselves at the same time. By being part of this programme, you can contribute to our initiatives to bring healing, inclusion, and dignity for people affected by leprosy. Also, it will give you a sense of satisfaction and kick-start your career.
Leprosy is very likely the oldest infectious disease in human history, yet it is one of the most misunderstood diseases. There is an age-old stigma associated with the disease, primarily because of the disfigurement it causes (if not detected and treated early) and the lack of understanding how it is transmitted. There are a lot of myths and misconceptions associated with the disease and because of this, people affected by leprosy are discriminated against and are ostracised by the society.
For over 140 years, TLMTI works for bringing healing, inclusion and dignity for people affected by leprosy. It’s transformational social change initiatives are implemented through a diverse set of programmes – Healthcare, Sustainable Livelihood, Community Empowerment, Advocacy, and Research and Training – through 14 hospitals and two clinics, six vocational training centres, five residential care homes for elderly persons affected by leprosy, a molecular research laboratory, and community empowerment projects spread across 10 states of India.
