New EWB-DK Project financed by EU Aid Volunteers Initiative


Engineers Without Borders Denmark together with a number of partner organizations (see list below) have secured a new project financed by EU Aid Volunteers (a part of the Europa Commission).

The purpose of the new project is to build internal capacity and a joint platform/tools in order for the partners to be certified and hence able to send and receive volunteers under the EU volunteer programme. As core element in EWB-DK’s and partners mission the project will strengthen the partners ability to jointly install and build up technical capacity and knowledge in order to jointly deliver humanitarian development – hence, together we can secure training and technical capacity building in order to provide humanitarian technical assistance in short and long-term projects.

About EU Aid Volunteers

The purpose of the EU Aid Volunteers programme is to have more volunteers doing humanitarian work outside EU. The initiative supports organizations in EU, which send volunteers to humanitarian projects in non-EU countries. As a part of the programme, there is mandatory training for all volunteers – both online and with physical presence. The tasks, the volunteers can perform depends on the person’s qualifications. E.g. organizational development, capacity building, project management, disaster and risk management support, food and nutrition, water and sanitation.
