EU CIS – Multilateral EVS Project

EVS project in EU and CIS countries ( Armenia, Russian Federation and Ukraine)

14 long-term volunteer placements from September 2004 to May 2005

The objective of this multilateral EVS project was to enhance the participation of CIS countries, namely Armenia, Russian Federation and Ukraine, in long term voluntary service projects and further articulate the experience acquired by the ICYE partners. The 14 young volunteers engaged in a range of quite different local hosting projects dealing with disadvantaged youth and children, ranging from orphanages, disabled care centres and schools to youth centres and initiatives, where volunteerism definitely brought an added value to the local communities.
