Medium and Long Term Program

Medium Term Programs

Medium term volunteer program is usually 2-6 months. It is a non-formal learning experience which develops people’s sensitivity towards social and cultural differences, and also builds self- confidence, esteem and your problem-solving ability.The program brings together individual volunteers as opposed to the short-term volunteering program that brings together several volunteers on a community service project. The volunteers are immersed into the local culture to a much greater extent allowing them to integrate better with the local community and actually become part of it. Over time they learn the local language, make friends and better understand the needs and challenges experienced by the local people. This enables them to take a more active role in the running of the project where they contribute towards its successful implementation.

On arrival orientation seminar is conducted to help you get acquainted with the project aims, objectives, structure of the host organization, the local norms, traditions and practices. KVDA provides a variety of projects from which the volunteer would make independent choices.

Long Term Programs



Long-term project is usually 12 months and one can extent if interested with about 2-3 months. It is a non-formal international learning experience which develops a volunteer’s sensitivity towards social and cultural differences, and also builds self-confidence and your problem solving ability.
Long-term volunteering is for an individual not a group of volunteers. it will be smaller and the work is not group-oriented. Middle term volunteers are immersed in the local culture to a much greater extent allowing them to integrate better with the local community and actually become part of it. Over time volunteers can learn the local language, make friends and better understand the needs and problems of the locals. This enables them to take a more active role in the running of the project by implementing their own ideas for accomplishment of better outcomes.
Before you begin your project orientation is given to help you get acquainted with the project aims, the host organization, the local norms and traditional practices. You can choose the project that suits you best. Feel very much welcomed when applying for a project from our multi long-term programs.
