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.

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
