Virtual Volunteering

 

Reaching out from home

Reaching out from home

It’s not an altogether new concept to the global volunteering community: online or virtual volunteering. Helping out organizations in developing countries from your desktop at home. In business circles the concept of a virtual assistant is gaining ground. Same theory: some people simply deliver quality from out of their homes and/or are too remotely located to be of any physical benefit. A real boon to volunteers who’d like to continue their efforts after coming home! Provided there is a real need at the receiving end. Visited the site of the UN Volunteers, where the concept has been practically worked out and – looking at the presentations – that works out fine. AMAIDI is going to incorporate this concept in its approach towards existing and ex-volunteers.
