About the Project:
The project 'EU Aid Volunteers in action' is run by two European NGOs, Gruppo di Volontariato Civile and Alianza por la Solidaridad and 13 third-countries organizations, with the support of one associate from the University of Bologna. The project aims at involving European citizens in Humanitarian Aid operations through the deployment of 38 EU Volunteers (20 juniors and 18 seniors) in eight countries: Tunisia, Lebanon, Jordan, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Cuba, Haiti, St Vincent and Grenadines. The project aims to build partnerships and strengthen our partners' capacities in delivering humanitarian aid. Communication runs throughout the activities, to raise awareness about EU Aid Volunteers and the results obtained. The project activities complement ongoing operations in humanitarian aid and respond to needs identified locally by partner organizations. The impact will be wide, as the project is based on strong commitment and experience of the partners in humanitarian aid and in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative, reaching at least 1661 beneficiaries and around 10 000 people through our communication activities.
