BECOME A HOSTING ORGANISATION
- Adhere to the standards and procedures of the EU Aid Volunteers initiative and be certified by the European Commission (more information on certification below).
- Be active in the field of humanitarian aid.
- Belong to any of the following categories:
- non-governmental not-for-profit organisations operating or established in a third country under the laws in force in that country;
- public law bodies of a civilian character, governed by the law of a third country;
- international agencies and organisations.
The purpose of EU Aid Volunteers is to support and reinforce hosting organisations’ activities:
EU Aid Volunteers are qualified individuals of both junior and senior profiles. They offer skills and/or expertise in various areas, such as:
- project management
- building local community resilience
- managing natural disasters consequences (for example: draught, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions…)
Recruited volunteers join teams working in hosting organisations based in disaster-affected countries. There, they reinforce their hosting organisation’s capacity to prevent and manage risks linked to disasters and improve the resilience of local communities in case of disasters.
