Junior Volunteer in Community-based Development in Ecuador

Descriptif :

The EU Regulation of the European Parliament and the Council establishing the European Voluntary Humanitarian Aid Corps – EU Aid Volunteers and related legislation create a framework for joint contributions from European volunteers to support and complement humanitarian aid in third countries. Therefore, the EU Aid Volunteers Initiative provides opportunities to European citizens and long-term residents, from a wide range of backgrounds and with a diversity of skills and professional experience, to get involved in humanitarian aid projects, support the provision of needs-based humanitarian aid in third countries and engage in volunteering opportunities.

Within this framework, the European Guild and the Ecuasol Foundation are putting together a team of 6 EU Aid Volunteers, both from junior and senior profiles. Together, they will work on a prevention and resilience project tackling the seismic and volcanic risks in the country.  For that team, we are currently looking for a Junior Volunteer in Community-based Development in Ecuador.

Mission :

1. General

Under the supervision of the team coordinator volunteer (team of 6 volunteers), in cooperation with the director of the Ecuasol Foundation and The European Guild, the volunteer will be in charge of community-based development in Ecuador.

2. Needs assessment and outreach tools

In cooperation with the Ecuadorian government and the municipality of Quito, along with the IRD (Institut de Recherche et de Développement) and its partners and the local office of ECHO, he/she will conduct a needs assessment (travel to disaster-stricken areas to be planned) and will coordinate the creation of outreach tools aimed at local communities, more especially those of Tiwinza, la Roldos, Pisuli (urban zones near Quito), and more broadly of Quito.
He/she will identify on-spot primary contacts in Ecuador.

3. Dissemination and Training

After testing the tools that have been produced (videos, comics, diagrams, booklets, manuals…) at Ecuasol, the volunteer will make contact with community centers and with the Ecuador’s Ministry of Education so that local players, witnesses and subject matter experts can deliver the awareness-raising program training. He/she will train the people who will teach the communities about the tools.

4. Follow up

The volunteer will follow the evolution and impact of the awareness-raising program. He/she will develop a set of key success indicators. He/she will capture valuable information and provide a report to ensure continuity of the actions.

5. Communication and Awareness on EU Aid Volunteers Initiative

The Volunteer shall:
a. Promote local volunteerism in disaster risk reduction, prevention and response;
b. Train local volunteers on organization and implementation of volunteer-based activities, when applicable;
c. Promote partnerships and collaboration between local and European organizations;
d. Draft and publish articles describing volunteer’s experience in the field;
e. Gather audiovisual materials to be used in a public awareness activity in the volunteer’s local community in Europe;
f. In coordination with the NGOs partner of the project, organize and execute a public awareness activity once back in Europe.
