Volunteer Correct goes to Cape Town
[November 7, 2014]
The foundation Volunteer Correct presented itself online in September. Volunteer Correct aims to improve transparency and accountability in international volunteering. Its founders are concerned about the quality of volunteer work and its effectiveness, and therefore strive to reach a stage where organizations are held responsible for their approaches and are encouraged to reflect on the effectiveness of their programs.
At the same time Volunteer Correct encourages volunteers to take the responsibility to be well informed when participating in a project.
Volunteer Correct brings this objective in practice with "Project Kaapstad." This media- and researchproject aims to make a good volunteerproject in Cape Town more transparent. In February a team of Volunteer Correct's volunteers will travel to South-Africa for 18 days. The result will be an comprehensive documentary.
