Last April, VolinHA-HO partners have just finished their annual trilateral meetings in Ecuador, Bangladesh and Burkina Faso:
- FOCSIV met Caritas Ecuador in Quito,
- ActionAid Bangladesh has hosted Comhlamh and Philippines Red Cross in Dhaka,
- Croix Rouge Burkinabé hosted France Volontaires and Croix Rouge Burundi in Ouagadougou.
Objective of the trilateral meetings:
Better know each other and discover the country’s specific context, as well as to identify needs and relevance of international volunteers placements.
In each country, few days of internal meetings and visits to other stakeholders (Fire Service, INGOs, national volunteering schemes…) were combined with on-field visits to community volunteers active in disaster risk reduction as well as trainings of volunteers. Participants came back full of new ideas for future projects and partnerships.
