VSO to tap Indian talent
DNIS News Network - Starting from January 2004, Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), a United Knigdom-based charity organisation, will start recruiting volunteers from India to work in other developing countries in Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe.
Volunteers will be recruited through a programme called 'Volunteer Overseas', a joint initiative with Mtra, a non-profit charity based in India. For the forst batch, VSO is looking to recruit from the skill areas of NGO management, microfinance, IT training and fund-raising.
"This is the first time that VSO will be recruiting volunteers from India," says Kevin Moll, Executive Director, VSO, adding: "Thus far, we have recruiting volunteers from developed countries. But now we want to tap the skills of Indian NGOs, especially as they can help enrich NGO interventions in developing countries."
A typical VSO assignment lasts two years; the volunteers are provided travel assistance, grants, training support and a modest monthly allowance during the period of their placements. Many volunteers have already been placed with NGOs across the country.
