AMAIDI Volunteering in India

Portal for international volunteers, interns & professionals

Unaterra Project

AMAIDI is entering in a new partnership with an Italian organization called Unaterra Project, based in Ginestra in the province of Potenza in the south, with Fabrizio Caputo as CEO.

In a nutshell: the aim of Unaterra Project is the implementation of sustainable development projects in the developing world. To achieve this aim Unaterra supports local communities with integrated projects in the energy conservation- and development sectors. Their methodology is designed to cover all phases of a project from identifying potential investors to working with the local beneficiaries.

Unaterra Project is located in Ginestra

Potenza, home province of Unaterra Project

Unaterra ¬†focuses on three main themes: sustainable development projects, climate change and international volunteering. One month ago Unaterra approached AMAIDI with a request to join their global network. Their aim is to provide a human resource platform for local NGO’s through sending out expert volunteers and to create a network of people eager to work for local sustainable development.

AMAIDI hopes to tap into the Italian volunteering market through its alliance with Unaterra. Contacts with Unaterra through Fabrizio are warm and promising.

Volunteers, Projects & Tamil music

From Feb 15 till March 4, in the surroundings of Auroville, Puducherry and Cuddalore, 15 Dutch students in the age-group between 17 and 30, all members of CC4U, will participate in various projects, hosted by the Indian NGO ‘Bless’ and join/give workshops & events centered around ‘music’ in South-India.

Through The JoHo Company in the Netherlands, CC4U – aspiring to integrate the different cultures that exist within Dutch society – wants to have a ‘live’ experience of youth-culture and grass-roots development in India.

Preps

Question: ‘How does one prepare best for one’s volontary work?’

Every journey starts with the first step. How to take that step, if you want to go to India?

When exactly are you prepared? What is needed to be prepared? Information? Practical excercises?

What information does the prospective volunteer need to prepare? How useful, for example, are cultural sensitization meetings or other preparation programs by organizations in homecountries for the adaptation of the volunteer later on in the country one is going to work in? And how usefull are the introduction or cultural programs that are offered by the host-organization in the country of the volunteer’s destination?

I hope our experienced volunteers – who’ve seen and done it all – can help us out here.
Be invited!

AMAIDI Foundation

The AMAIDI Foundation is AMAIDI's latest offshoot. AF is meant to support (ex)volunteers in their funding and implementing projects they support during or after their stay/work in India. For partners in India it is also an instrument that enables them to find (new) sponsors and donors to invest in their projects. And for donors to find the implementing agencies they need to realize their social targets/harvest their profit/social ROI
