The EU Aid Volunteers is an initiative of the European Union. It brings together volunteers and organisations from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects and contributing to strengthening the local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities. Participants in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative must be over 18 years of age and be a citizen of an EU Member State or long-term resident in the EU.
ActionAid Hellas (Greece), WEWORLD-GVC (Italy), Alianza por la Solidaridad (Spain) and Acción contra el Hambre (Spain) are international non-governmental organizations that have joined their expertise in the management of humanitarian action worldwide and now implement the “EU Aid Volunteers supporting and complementing Humanitarian Aid in Middle East, Africa, Asia and Southern and Central America” project.
The project’s aim is to improve the response and the resilience capacities of the most vulnerable local communities through needs-based humanitarian aid (HA) in the Middle East, Asia, Southern and Central America and Africa with the deployment of 58 EU Aid Volunteers and 4 online volunteers. The volunteers will be deployed in 34 hosting organizations in 22 third countries: Tunisia, Palestine, Lebanon, Burkina Faso, Mozambique, Peru, Guatemala, Bolivia, Brazil, Cambodia, Niger, Mali, Benin, Kenya, Nepal, India, Senegal, Mauritania, Georgia, Philippines, Colombia, Myanmar.
For this vacancy, the volunteer will be hosted/based at ActionAid International Kenya field office in Isiolo Local Relief Programme (ActionAid’s Programmes Supporting Local Communities) supporting the LRP Coordinator Isiolo county in the eastern province of Kenya. It is a water-stressed area due to its semi-arid nature with very few permanent rivers in the area. The area frequently experiences food shortages as a result of drought. AAIK and its partners work on advancing women rights, livelihoods and natural resource management, humanitarian and resilience building as well as accountability.
