Needs: 

On the basis of the need assessment, countries have been chosen as they were identified to be the most appropriate for the following reasons: meets the project and EU Initiative’s priority needs, goals and mission; conveys a powerful message of community impact; hosting organizations have the required features to be certified hosting organizations; safety, risk management and liability issues are in a standard basis; the amount of travel, commitment or training required for volunteers to perform the task is reasonable; in the chosen countries, volunteers make staff more effective.
Before starting the phase of selection of volunteers, all tasks and profiles of volunteers will be confirmed with hosting organization, due to the fact that the deployment is foreseen at the end of 2016. This will allow to identify all the specific gaps to be fulfilled with the support of volunteers. During the volunteers training and upon its completion, candidate volunteers will be assessed for their preparedness for deployment based on the competence framework. 
Beneficiaries have be chosen according to a systematic consultation by hosting organizations, thanks to the experience they have in the field, undertaking systematic listening of stakeholders to give voice to their priorities and concerns.
