  • About

The EU Aid Volunteers project aims to strengthen the resilence and response capacity of vulnerable and disaster affected communities through the deployment of EU Aid Volunteers. EU Aid Volunteers deployment opportunities will be offered to 32 people in Colombia, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Senegal, Niger, Burkina Faso, Mozambique, Philippines, Palestine, Lebanon and Cambodia.

 

Through their volunteering deployments, EU Aid Volunteers will support the sharing of good practices and lessons learned around disaster risk management, Early Warning System, logistic chain in emergency response and resilience in vulnerable communities, and help to boost and strengthen the humanitarian skills and capacities of a range of humanitarian actors.

 

The expected impact of the project is fully oriented to a whole process of skills creation and knowledge reinforcement, suitable to generate change on preparedness and resilience mechanisms among vulnerable populations, technicians and authorities at different levels, based on an active collaboration of key private and public humanitarian actors.

 

EU Aid Volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds will be deployed for periods between 2 and 12 months depending on the profile and needs of each participating non-EU country.
