EVS project in EU (Austria, Belgium, Italy, Finland, Spain) and Latin American Countries (Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay)
15 long-term volunteer placements from January to July 2010
The project aimed at actively promoting volunteer engagement in cultural, social and non formal learning activities targeting vulnerable groups in the participating countries. The volunteers supported host organizations working with children and young people with less opportunities / in need. The participation of international volunteers was an added value for the daily life of young people and staff in the local host organizations. The project fostered mutual understanding of young people from different cultural, social and religious background as well as intercultural awareness and dialogue.
