The main objective of the project is training for certification of organizations for the EU Aid Volunteers programme, which is aimed at providing practical support to the humanitarian aid efforts, and at contributing towards strengthening the local capacities in countries affected by disasters. In this way, EU Aid Volunteers enables European citizens to practically help the affected communities. In order to achieve this goal, the volunteers are highly trained to acquire the necessary skills for effectively dealing with the consequences of the natural disasters.
ADRA from Slovakia is the organization which is responsible for implementing the project, and apart from Volunteers Centre Skopje, other participating organizations are from Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, France, Nepal, Cambodia, the Czech Republic, Serbia and Lebanon.
Due to the latest situation with Covid-19 pandemic, the training and the meetings are taking place online, at the moment, during which VCS acquires the necessary knowledge, tools and skills to complete the certification process.
VCS is the first and only organization from Macedonia, which participates in the certification process. Thus, VCS remains dedicated to active participation in the sphere of volunteering and offering assistance where it is needed.
