The Malta Council for the Voluntary for the Voluntary Sector in its quest to support and facilitate the work of Voluntary Organisations abroad has launched the second questionnaire addressing Overseas Volunteer Service addressing various aspects such as obligations of voluntary organisations towards members, the type and range of training that should be given to volunteers prior to their departure from Malta for their mission overseas, the type of insurance cover for participants etc.
As a result of this questionnaire MCVS will publish a handbook for Volunteers that will provide useful background information about the countries that are most frequently chosen by volunteers.
MCVS will also look into the setting up of a training programme addressed to Volunteers as well as look into how it may support VOs in providing insurance covers for volunteers.
Those Voluntary Organisations who have either past or ongoing experience of such Overseas projects or are planning to take up such an initiative in the near future are kindly requested to duely fill the below questionnaire and send it by e-mail to the MCVS Office on firstname.lastname@example.org by the 28th June 2014.
Your support is essential so that the MCVS may be in a better position to support you!
