Team Talks with YSYF:
Interview with Shreyansh Kushwaha

We are back with another YSYF Team Talks interview! This series allows you a glimpse into the mind of our organization’s team members. We chatted recently with Shreyansh Kushwaha, YSYF Graphic Designer.

“Indeed it’s generally more acceptable to get a medical or engineering degree than to earn the equivalent in arts and graphics. ‘If you say to someone that you are a UX designer [in India] or a brand designer their reaction is mostly, ‘Umm... But what is that?’

Deeply rooted norms never really disappear, but if we challenge them in positive ways, the ideas can give birth to revolutionary ways of life. ‘Otherwise, how could a kid from a city in India be planning to build a career in design when everyone around him is pursuing science? Definitely, it will take time for people to accept that design and freelancing can be a career option just like engineering but we still have a long journey to cover.’”

Clinical Expansion
Project Update

The Doryumu Clinic Expansion Project aimed to expand a clinic located in the community of Doryumu by developing a waiting area for patients, while also adhering to social distancing protocols. YSYF partnered with Ghana National Health Service and local leadership to expand the clinic waiting room, with the hope of reducing the spread of COVID-19, exposure to heat/rain and ensuring the privacy of patients. In addition, local sustainable resources were used to help build the waiting room. Be sure to check out the Clinic Expansion video on our Youtube channel! The video relays the significance and impact that the expansion project had on various parties involved such as the community of Doryumu, service users and YSYF members.
