Volunteers – Support and capacity building for a European Union volunteer initiative)

ABC EUAV is another project that Caritas Serbia is implementing within the program Disaster Risk Reduction. Caritas Europe is the holder of the project which, in addition to Serbia, will be realized in seven other countries in the next two years.

Project goals:
1. All partners have the knowledge and capacity to actively participate in EUAV initiative projects.
2. Capacities in the field of disaster risk reduction (DRR) and organisational preparedness to respond to emergencies are enhanced.
3. Existing capacities in the field of volunteer management and safeguarding are enhanced

The project is funded by the European Union, or in the other word, the EUAV initiative – European Union Aid Volunteers. EUAV is a mechanism that allows connecting volunteers and organizations from different European countries with the aim of providing assistance in building the capacity and response of organizations to crisis situations caused by natural disasters, as well as the provision of humanitarian assistance to the affected population.
