XCHANGE Project is promoted and implemented by a Consortium of 17 partners: 5 EU Sending Organisations from Italy, Slovakia and Spain, and 12 Hosting Organisations from Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Guatemala, Colombia, Peru and Serbia. The general goal of the project is to give members the possibility to manage volunteers within the framework of the EUAV initiative and to learn good practices in humanitarian aid, volunteer management and community based development from each other and from European institutions. The project will achieve the goal in three ways: through training activities focused on procedures and methods targeted directly at obtaining the certification to send/host EU Aid volunteers; through complementary trainings focused on the improvement of the technics of management of the volunteers in the field according to the specific needs of each organisation; through seminars and meetings organized to exchange experiences, good practices and lessons learnt among the partners. In this way the project will allow members to get the proper knowledge and know how about the structures and principles of EU Humanitarian Aid, volunteers’ methods of selection and follow up, assignation of tasks, security rules, health measures, logistics, human resources coordination, monitoring and evaluation systems. By means of seminars, workshops and international meetings, all the partners will share at the end a common approach towards volunteering in humanitarian aid based on EU aid principles; they will be able to manage the needed competences to develop by their own needs analysis and risks assessments, to define their own volunteer management strategies, to host properly national and international volunteers, becoming points of reference for volunteers reception programmes in their countries.  To promote the visibility of the program, specific actions will disseminate results and impacts at local, national and international level.
