The term Deployment identifies the EU Aid Volunteers projects structured to select and train volunteers and to send them to the non-European countries where GVC and its partners carry out the field activities of humanitarian aid, resilience, disaster risk management and disaster risk reduction. The volunteers are chosen from among citizens aged 18 or over – either from Europe or resident there for a lengthy period – after a careful selection process and specific training. Once sent to the destination, volunteers are integrated within the activities of the local organisations and communities, to maximise their response capacity regarding humanitarian crises in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Central America and the Middle East.
A volunteer is chosen in relation to the specific needs of the local organisations, and in keeping with the European standards set out in the initiative.
