Vivienne Jackson travelling to Tamil Nadu

Vivienne JacksonMy name is Vivienne Jackson, I am 20 years old and have been working for Rohan for 18 months now in Rohan Inverness. As well as working for Rohan I am currently studying towards my degree as a Dental Therapist/Hygienist at the Inverness Campus of the University of Highlands and Islands.

This summer I am travelling to Tamil Nadu, Southern India to volunteer in a charity dental camp with The Schoolhouse Volunteer Trust (Charity Registration No.: SC042048) to help provide much needed dental care to the rural communities. This camp will provide basic dental screening, cancer screening, decalcification, fillings, and extractions as necessary but most importantly lifelong dental education.

Without dental care, pain, sepsis and malocclusion is more prevalent which can impact on speech, eating and diminish everyday life quality. Without this camp most children and adults in this region of India would go without much needed dental care. This volunteering opportunity will allow me to help the local community, improve and develop my skills as a dental clinician as well as experience a new culture.

Working alongside the mission hospital in Batlagundu and Kodaikanal it is necessary to dress respecting the religious and cultural beliefs of the local residents in the local communities and in the mission hospital – arms and legs must be covered at all times. Amblers and a Malay shirt will be ideal for this to keep me cool whilst out and about due to their lightweight technology and built in moisture control.

It will also be monsoon season in India this August so it will be absolutely necessary to kit myself out in Rohan gear with its built in technology to ensure comfort when working in the hot and damp conditions in the clinic. The Strata top will be perfect under my scrubs.

Kit List:
Strata top L/S top
Elite Jacket
Amblers
Swift T
Pinpoint T
Microrib stowaway jacket
Serene trousers
Malay shirt
