The NGO Support Centre is partner in a new technical assistance project led by the Italian organisation Gruppo di Volontariato Civile. The project 'More and Better EU Aid Volunteers' aims at strengthening the capacities of national organisations willing to participate in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative by training and supporting them in Humanitarian Aid actions, and in the standards and procedures to follow in order to gain certification as a sending organisation, as part of the initiative. This will be achieved through an e-learning training and a subsequent physical training session in Cyprus.
The project will also implement an awareness raising campaign about the EU Aid Volunteers initiative for organisations and the general public.
On 21-23 March the national coordinator of Cyprus participated in the project kick-off meeting in Brussels, together with the other 9 partners of the consortium.
Stay tuned for more updates in the following months!
