DIR Staff


Each morning, DIR Health Promoters start the day by practicing yoga together. It is a chance to put some distance between their daily lives in the basti and their work as community leaders and agents of change.

The full complement of DIR Staff typically comprises a physician, a nutritionist and an administrator, fully qualified professionals who together oversee the training and management of the team of Health Promoters (HPs). DIR recruits HPs from within the community it works in, thereby ensuring that the staff brings local knowledge into DIR and that community relationships and trust are already in place.

DIR takes care to engage individuals who reflect the cultural diversity of the communities in which it works.
