12 Good reasons
The range of volunteers and pro bono programs is getting larger and more complex.
Here is why volunteering with AMAIDI makes a difference.
We do not make any financial profit by advising, arranging and accompanying volunteers, but are committed to the transfer of knowledge and civic involvement.
Even before their deployment, you will receive comprehensive information about the process, the contact persons and the task at hand. For assignments abroad, we also provide information on accommodation costs, give detailed country information, organize the transfer from the airport to your accommodation, and much more. In order to make the start easier, introductory events are held on site. Individual support before, during and after the project assignment is provided in your home country by a coordinator in your national language before departure and a coordinator in the national language or English on site.
Our prices include a variety of services. We have carefully selected these and included or quantified only those things that you will actually need.
Our fee is only due in case of a successful placement.
The application can be made at any time.
At the end of the assignment they receive a qualified proof of activity.
Our large network of employees guarantees professional and personal support. Permanent employees are committed to AMAIDI worldwide – for example in the selection, preparation and support of our volunteers and/or project partners. Most of them are former volunteers who can draw on their own experience. In addition, they are comprehensively trained by AMAIDI for their respective tasks. In every AMAIDI partner country there are permanent staff members who are available for our volunteers at any time – in case of emergency even around the clock.
To ensure that all those involved benefit as much as possible from the voluntary commitment, we attach great importance to personal care and support before, during and after the assignment. With detailed discussions and reports we ensure that the learning process is deepened and together we evaluate the experiences made.
Unfortunately not everything always goes smoothly. Whether it’s a dispute, disagreement, accident, illness or lost passport – in such situations support is always needed. Together with our local coordinators, we are available around the clock and are there for you when you need help. We also support relatives and friends back home if an emergency should arise.
At AMAIDI we are convinced that children as well as animals have rights and that these rights must be protected. Therefore all employees, volunteers and project partners must agree to our regulations in writing.
AMAIDI means cohesion. At AMAIDI, social commitment and personal development does not end with the project assignment: volunteers have the opportunity to get involved with us afterwards.
