We are working with our international NGO partners to launch another skill based opportunity. We will announce in September.
We are looking to the Canadian and American governments and to the CDC and Health Canada to be supportive of international travel. And we are looking to the corporations where our employees work to open up their offices, to have in-person events, and to allow travel for work and VTO purposes.
We want to make sure our volunteers’ insurance covers international travel and that V2I’s insurance enables us to lead volunteer abroad programs again.
We need flights to be readily available from all major cities to volunteer program locations and without the high risk of cancellation or long delays. The countries where our NGO partners work need to be welcoming of international travelers, and isolation cannot be required upon arrival or upon returning home.
We do not want to expose the local community to unnecessary risk or strain the local health care system’s capacity by bringing a volunteer team. We are also mindful of what the situation in the local context would require to run a volunteer program such as PPE or difficulty accessing beneficiaries.
We do not want to expose our volunteers to significant or probable unnecessary risk, and we need to be confident that the local infrastructure can respond to emerging health risks.
We do not want to expose Venture 2 Impact, the companies our volunteers work for, or our local NGO partners who host the volunteer programs to reputational risk.
One of the biggest challenges in the community we are working in is child abandonment due to economic insecurity. We are working to upskill youth, young mothers and community members in one of the disadvantaged suburbs of Kigali to help them qualify for better paying jobs. By improving computer skills, English language fluency and business/income generating skill we are supporting stable homes and healthier children.
Nepal has faced nearly continuous political instability, and it remains one of the world’s poorest and least-developed countries. Investing in people and building human capital are critical if Nepal is to accelerate its growth and rapidly reduce poverty. We are working with children, youth and women to provide tech and business training to help create market and job opportunities. We are also doing English language training, an essential need to work in the ever growing tourism industry.
In conjunction with Hope and Homes and the European Union we are involved in facilitating life changing educational camps in Baia Mare. The camps are a part of a 3-year program to provide low income children with the inspiration and motivation needed to stay in school and enroll in formal education. As a volunteer you’ll teach English, computer skills and life skills. There will also be a sports, arts and music component to the program.
