Organisation Overview

Founded by a local pediatrician, Thavaru Public Charitable Trust is a community-based organisation in Hassan, Karnataka State in South Western India. They aim to provide shelter and support for orphans, the elderly and the terminally ill through a series of programmes for the poor and disadvantaged including hospice care, education, adoption programmes and medical facilities. Their vision is to provide shelter for uncared for senior citizens and abandoned babies, provide a better life for the mentally and physically challenged and make Thavaru Public Charitable Trust a happy home for the needy.

Why do they need this training?

Thavaru PCT has already established an impressive programme of projects and services in the local area, but the large scope and time-sensitive nature of their work means that ongoing staff training is often not prioritised. Yet the ability to communicate directly with both communities and possible sources of funding will be crucial to the success of their programmes.

Who would fit this role?

Thavaru are looking for a professional with extensive knowledge of basic web design principles, web development and social media management strategies.

Marketing experience would be beneficial, especially in online campaigns and “calls to action”

This opportunity is open to pairs & couples

Thavaru ublic Charitable Trust are happy to accommodate two people and are open to two volunteers delivering the training.
