Volunteering in India

How to Volunteer in India?

  1. Choosing an Organisation: Choose an organisation that can specifically benefit from your abilities and skills.
  2. Time Required: How much time can you devote to a project? Can you commit for at least a month or two, ideally longer.
  3. Money: Giving your time for free is only part of the story; most organisations expect volunteers to cover their accommodation, food and transport.
  4. Conditions: Make sure you understand what you’re signing up for: many organisations expect volunteers to work full time, five days a week.
  5. Transparency: Ensure that the organisation is transparent about how it spends its money.
  6. Preparation: It may be possible to find a placement after you arrive, but its preferred if volunteers have applied in advance and been approved for the kind of work involved.
  7. Background check: Will be done for those who will be working with children & Women.

Types of Volunteer work available?

  1. Care GivingIf you have medical experience, there are numerous opportunities to provide health care and support for the most vulnerable in Indian society.
  2. Community: Many community volunteer projects work to provide health care and education to villages.
  3. Design & Restoration: There are a few places where those with architectural and building skills can help.
  4. Environment & Conservation: A range of local organisations work in environmental education and sustainable development.
  5. Teaching: Many schools need teachers of English for long-term placements; Be wary of any organisation that does not require safety checks for adults working with children.
  6. Working with Animals: Opportunities for animal-lovers are plentiful.
  7. Working with Children: Various charities provide support for disadvantaged children. Ask questions of any organisation to make sure they are taking steps to protect the children in their care. Reputable organisations will insist on safety checks for adults working with children.
  8. Working with Women: India has a range of local charities working to empower and educate women.

International volunteering agencies abound, and it can be tricky trying to assess which ones are worthwhile. Agencies offering the chance to do whatever you want, wherever you want, are almost always tailoring projects to the volunteer rather than finding the right volunteer for the work that needs to be done. Look for projects that will derive real benefits from your skills.

They also tend to last up to a week, with events, meals and celebrations every day. It’s not uncommon for families to invite over a thousand people and take out loans just to cover wedding costs.

WHY CHOOSE Farhataas?


Making Laser Hair Removal Smooth Process For Men And Women 

Laser is the easiest and quickest way to bid goodbye to all the unwanted hair, which has destroyed more than 100 hours of your life, shaving, waxing and tweezing. You are just one step away from getting the smooth and silky skin of your dreams. With newer technology, these laser treatments have only advanced, becoming more effective and efficient, which is relatively pain free compared to other hair removal alternatives that require regular maintenance and time.

[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]

Do I need to stop using specific medications before laser hair removal?

Any medications that are photosensitive need to be stopped at least one week prior to treatment. Most antibiotics can be photosensitive, so if you have an infection, it could be a good idea to push your treatment back a few weeks. Patients should not be using skincare with strong actives such as retinoids and alfa hydroxyl acids. If you’re not sure whether your medication could negatively affect your laser hair removal treatment, consult with your doctor beforehand.

How frequently one must attend laser hair removal session?

One of the biggest mistakes people make is not completing the necessary amount of sessions. Once the hair growth slows down, patients don’t follow through. If you really want your treatment to be effective, listen to your practitioner — they know best.

Are there any risks associated with laser hair removal?

While laser hair removal is considered a safe treatment,  there is a risk of burning, while the FDA adds that blistering, discoloration, redness, and scarring are also potential side effects. There’s also the possibility that your hair could grow back Some people may require yearly treatments to keep new hair growth at bay.

Do I need to shave before the appointment?

Shave the area you are treating beforehand so that the laser can penetrate into the root of the hair — not target or singe any hair on or outside the skin

Is Laser hair removal a complicated process? Laser hair removal treatment is actually very simple process. Energy from the laser is picked up by the pigment in the hair follicle, causing destruction to the root. Once the root is destroyed, it can’t produce more hair.

Is laser hair removal painful? With numbing, it should be comfortable it feels like a rubber band snapping the skin and many clients describe it as a light, warm pinch.

Don’t worry if you’re on your period. Unlike getting a bikini wax, you should not cancel your treatment due to your period, just use a tampon that day.

What are the types of laser hair removal treatments available?

  1. Diode: The diode laser is very effective for light and dark skin.
  2. Alexandrite: This laser is the fastest of all laser types and works best for treating larger body areas among patients who are have light-to-olive complexions.
  3. Nd:YAG: This long pulse laser can be used safely on all skin types, including tanned skin. It is less effective for light or fine hair when compared to other types of lasers.

What kind of hair are best suited for laser hair removal? The laser is attracted to pigment, or color, in the hair follicle. That said, it can take a little longer to fully work on thicker hair. Some hair is just very resistant, and sometimes new ones come out due to hormonal changes or other hair bulbs becoming active during the treatment period.

What care do I need to do after laser hair removal session?

After your session, avoidance to sun exposure is advisable and the use of a sunscreen. Also note that any hair growth between sessions should be shaved off — not waxed or threaded.

What areas of body does Laser hair removal works best on?

Hair removal can work on any body part you wish to remove hair from, it is especially effective on the bikini, lip, chin, and underarm areas. Though Seriously, anywhere. Laser Hair Removal only targets the roots of your hair, never passing the dermis (your second layer of skin). This makes it a safe, effective alternative to waxing and shaving that can have you bikini (or speedo) ready – forever.

How longs does it take to see real results for laser hair removal treatment?

Everybody is different, so the amount of sessions it takes varies per individual. Laser hair removal works when the hair is in its active growth rate. Different parts of the body have different growth rates, and therefore could take longer or shorter depending on which spot you’re treating, but majority of clients need an average of six to eight treatments for full hair removal.

What is the cost of each hair removal session?

The price you pay per session of laser hair removal can vary from provider to provider. It can range depending on which body part you’re removing hair from. Considering multiple sessions are often needed to fully stop hair growth, it’s not exactly a cheap treatment. It can cost anywhere between $50-$300 per session.
