Our Dutch partner SAMEN has organised an Erasmus+ KA2 Capacity building project, focussed on European Voluntary Service outside of the EU, in 2017. On the basis of this experience they have developed a publication, which focussed on which contribution a volunteer can play in the position as a guest in social youth organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin-America.
The publication is available in English and Dutch
Our dutch partners of SAMEN had published a best practices booklet on their Erasmus+ EVS project in third countries. You can read about the projects in the English, Dutch or Spanish version:
SAMEN is a Don Bosco organisation sending volunteer on international voluntary service outside of Europe. They have published a Best practices manual on the experiences of their volunteers. SAMEN is closely connected to our Dutch MO Don Bosco Youthnet Nederland, and DBYN is a partner in their group EVS project. Therefore we are disseminating their best practices on our website. The booklet is available in English, Spanish and Dutch. On this website you can read it online. If you are interested in receiving the pdf, please contact the international secretariat.
DBYN is developing a method for measuring the social impact of its projects. As a first step in this process we carried out a "Social Return on Investment" research on the "All Alien! " training course. The results of this research are published in report "Social Impact Measurement - Case study: All Alien! STEP 1 training course and its social return on investment".
This publication was made by Ms. Margaryta Buliy, in the framework of an European internship programme she was carrying out in the international secretariat of Don Bosco Youth-Net ivzw.
