Through the EU Aid Volunteers initiative, financed by the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department (ECHO), you can apply for a unique experience in the humanitarian aid field in different countries throughout Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.  

GVC has opened selection procedures for volunteers who will work in different local organisations in Bolivia, Guatemala, Peru, Mozambique, Burundi, Burkina Faso, Lebanon, Palestine and Thailand.

 The initiative is open to all European Citizens over 18 years of age with two different profiles:

  • junior volunteers: who want to increase their skills and their professional and life experience;
  • senior volunteers: professionals who have already had 5 years of experience in the humanitarian sector.

Volunteers will carry out administration tasks, disaster risk management in emergencies, architecture, volcanology or seismology, communication activities of a humanitarian aid project, aiming to guarantee support and increase the resilience of the most vulnerable communities.

Volunteers will receive a monthly subsistence lump sum intended to cover basic needs and local transport. Accommodation, Visa fees, insurance and airfares will be covered.
