EuroAsia Volunteering Assistance Programe

About the project:

EuroAsia Volunteering Assistance Programme is the name of a project that indicates a completely new beginning. For the first time ever, we are expanding our horizons and making a connection to Southeast Asia countries. Together with our European partner organizations from Slovakia, France and Czech Republic, we decided that now is the perfect moment to start a project with countries from Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand) and enable the sharing of good practices and voluntary services.

Main goals of the project:

  • Build up the capacity of the youth organizations, both sending and hosting by organizing special trenings;
  • Build an online platform with all necessary information regarding the volunteering in developing countries;
  • Creation of guidelines /requirements that need to be met for hosting and sending volunteers;
  • Promotion of volunteering as an essential element in active citizenship. “EuroAsia” is enabling European volunteers to travel to Asia, to strengthen their professional and personal abilities and find out more about Asian culture.

Project partners:

“EuroAsia” is a project carried out by seven diverse partners from two continents. Four of them are European and three are from Southeast Asia. Below you can see the list of the partner organization:
