ReBirth has come up with a free eLearning course on the process of organ donation. It has a set of 15 questions answering which will make the participant qualify for a certificate on organ donation awareness. This course is launched on Edelweiss and will benefit innumerable people across the nation.



Rajesh Shetty, founder of Rebirth, said, “ReBirth took up this task of interviewing surgeons, counsellors, and all the other agencies involved in the whole process of organ Donation and draft a souvenir/magazine using all the information. This souvenir will act as a reference document for knowing anything and everything about organ donation in Pune, India.”

“The foundation has designed its own ReBirth Ganesha which is self-explanatory as far as organ donation symbol is concerned. The dashboard of the car is commonly reserved for the image of Ganpati. A ReBirth Ganesha on the dashboard will serve as a medium to create awareness to all those people who sit in the car. The organisation has also tied up with many other organisations to create awareness on organ donation,” he added.
