EU Aid Volunteers Programme: Mid-Term Recommendations

In February 2018 Volonteurope, Alianza por la Solidaridad, GVC, Imago Mundi, Action Aid Hellas, Action Aid Italia and LVIA launched a new EU Aid Volunteers Technical Assistance project, building on the work of the previous two year long project, coordinated by Alianza por la Solidaridad, Volonteurope, GVC, and Hungarian Baptist Aid. As part of this new project, we are reporting on the successes and challenges of the EU Aid Volunteers programme, from the perspective of participating organisations. We have been talking to organisations involved in sending, hosting and coordinating projects, and gathering feedback about their experiences of the project – from certification, the creation of projects and vacancies, to deploying volunteers.


This feedback will form the basis of a report of recommendations, which we will put to DG ECHO and EACEA later this month, and we would like to invite you to attend.


Are you a participating organisation? Are you interested in taking part in the project? Come to this session, listen to the recommendations, and put your own questions and concerns to the agencies.
