Hungarian Volunteer Sending Foundation (HVSF)

This page is also available in: French, Spanish


The purpose of the Hungarian Volunteer Sending Foundation is to foster a relationship with organisations specialised in carrying out developmental and aid projects and to find the right volunteer or professional for the job, based on the needs and requests forwarded to them. After gaining knowledge of the concrete concerns and circumstances of the project, they also prepare the volunteers or professionals for the specific on-site tasks they will be carrying out. The foundation also provides the infrastructure needed to carry out the tasks: transportation, insurance, food and lodging, health coverage and communications. It also offers support and oversees the volunteer's or professional's work and, upon their return home, helps them readapt to their normal environment.

Their objective is to contribute to the success of the whole project by ensuring the effective personal contributions of the volunteers and professionals.
