Medium and Long Term Volunteering 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 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.
