Volunteering activities will mainly take place in the areas of education, community development, management development, health, food safety, agriculture.

host associations located in developing countries, 4,000 members of local communities, 1,100 students, 1,100 children, 200 local leaders.
All volunteers will participate in safety training before departure. During spring 2019, study visits will be carried out by EU partners in each extra-EU partner to define the needs and activities that will be carried out by volunteers. During these visits some methods and tools will be shared by the EU partners with those outside the EU to develop their elasticity regarding their local context and about any risks. In June 2019, non-EU partners will have the opportunity to participate in a training session on relevant issues related to the management of humanitarian volunteering. Finally, in the summer of 2020, evaluation visits will make it possible to ensure that all the measures and tools have been created through the projects in order to build resilience and limit future risks following the closure of the project.
