VAP News > 16th May 2019: Climate Justice and Raising Peace

Our database offers projects in many countries but this isn’t everything!
VAP is part of a worldwide network. Through our membership of the Co-ordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS) and our links with the Alliance we can find volunteer opportunities for you all over the world, sometimes tailor-made for what interests you most. So, if at a first glance we have nothing that grabs you, contact us with your ideas and we can try to find what suits you best.

As members of a global International Voluntary Service movement VAP wholeheartedly supports CCIVS campaigns, in particular Raising Peace, concerned with human rights, and Climate Justice about maintaining a sustainable environment. VAP participates with themed workcamps, talks and special events in the UK. There are also occasional opportunities to join training or a conference outside the UK some of which carry funding support.

Quote of the day

« I can say that the best things about the workcamp and this whole experience were the chance of making a real difference to the lives of very needy children. This is an extremely valuable project where volunteers can have a massive impact. Also the possibility of learning a huge amount about a country so different from our own. I learnt ten times as much by carrying out a workcamp than I would ever do backpacking. »
