Volunteer Opportunities at National Association for the Blind, India

1. Volunteer at NAB Worli’s Talking Books Center to use your voice to record audio books for the visually impaired. You will need to do an audio test first to see if your voice is clear enough when being recorded. A book recording is for a minimum of 3 sittings of 1 hour each (which you need to schedule directly with NAB between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday).

2. Volunteer to be a writer for the visually impaired during their exams. You will need to make yourself available between 9:30am-noon on a weekday at their Mahalaxmi Workshop when exams happen. Exams happen every few months. Get in touch with Pallavi Kadam (Director of the NAB Workshop at Mahalaxmi) at nabemp@yahoo.co.in for more details.)
