Today, the steering team of our big international project Global Volunteer Action met in Antwerp to evaluate and celebrate the amazing activities that have taken place since March 2015. The project, supported Erasmus+ KA2, has focused on networking, capacity building, non-formal education and innovation in international youth and volunteer work and has helped to better connect SCI branches in Europe and Asia. A big thank you to the team or all their hard work and passion!

We are talking a lot about funding today, but this time we'd like to introduce you to one of the three funds available from SCI!

SCI's Disaster Relief Fund is available for SCI’s branches, groups and working groups in order to carry out projects of immediate support after a natural disaster or mid/long term projects which include voluntary work with direct and indirect benefits for the local population and ecosystem.  Possible areas of work are for example natural disaster relief activities, knowledge sharing and financial support to the affected communities.

KVT, the Finnish branch of the SCI, organized their annual volunteer weekend this year with a Building Bridges theme: Middle East and migration. The weekend was funded by the Refugee Fund of the SCI which is available for all the SCI branches to apply.
