Any volunteer work can be included in the volunteering section.

Tell me more about your teaching experience, so that I can tell whether it's appropriate to include it as a teaching experience or not.

Yes, include the polio volunteer.

But do not include that teaching as a teaching experience, teaching experience means appropriate academic post.

No. Residency is not an academic teaching post.

Yes, include your participation in the blindness program in the volunteering section.
