CAPACITY BUILDING STAGE XIV
Start date: Aug 1, 2010,
The goal of the group EVS-project "Capacity Building Stage XIV" is to promote volunteering and youth activism and to improve cooperation and networking among NGOs. The hosting projects directly Involve people from disadvantaged backgrounds and socially excluded parts of the society. Volunteers are going to assist in centers for socially disadvantaged and/or disabled children, youth and elderly people, provide non-formal learning possibilities and promote volunteering. The activities not only support the target groups directly, but the presence of international EVS volunteers brings public attention to the existing problems and the worthwile work of the hosting organisations.Building on previous experiences and quality assessments "Capacity Building Stage XIV" aims to continue the cooperation with those hosting projects that were most satisfying for previous volunteers and gain sustainability. We also aim to further extend the programme to give new hosting partners and projects the chance to strengthen their structure and benefit from the intercultural dialogue offered by the EVS exchange. 20 young volunteers from Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Czech Republic, Iceland and France will spend 10 months in projects of our partners in Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldova.
