What is the EU Aid Volunteer Initiative (EUAVI) ?
The EUAVI provides opportunities for EU citizens and long-term residents living in the EU to volunteer in humanitarian projects worldwide. The EUAVI also provides:
- Training support and mentoring to volunteers deployed
- Capacity building for local staff and volunteers of organisations in countries affected by disasters
- Technical assistance for organisations based in Europe to strengthen their capacity to participate
The European Volunteering for You (EV4U) project runs from January 2017-December 2018 and focuses on improving sending and hosting organisations practices and procedures when dealing with volunteers in humanitarian work.
