Since February, PAH along with four European humanitarian organizations is implementing the Technical Assistance Project within the framework of EU Aid Volunteers program.
The European Commission’s EU Aid Volunteers initiative, brings together volunteers and organizations from across Europe, providing practical support in the provision of humanitarian aid in the crisis affected areas. The overall aim of the project is to enhance the scale of humanitarian assistance through increasing the operational capacity of both sending and hosting organizations.
Throughout the program, 4 000 EU citizens will get the opportunity to do humanitarian work and help people caught up in crises. Furthermore, the initiative will provide 10 000 online volunteering opportunities.
The Technical Assistance project aims to assist PAH and partner organizations from central Eastern Europe in the process of becoming sending organizations within the framework of EU Aid Volunteers. In order to perform the highest quality of well-trained volunteer’s deployment and their security provision, organizations need to meet a number of standards and policies in the volunteer management area.
This project is co-funded by the European Union for the ‘EU Aid Volunteers initiative’.
