Online Volunteering


     
 

ONLINE VOLUNTEERING - COLLABORATING WITH VOLUNTEERS THROUGH THE INTERNET The UN is offering all non-governmental and civil society organizations working in any field of human development the opportunity to benefit from the collaboration with online volunteers. NetAid is a major new initiative of UNDP (UN Development Programme) and CISCO Systems, taking advantage of the Internet to allow people around the world to get involved in development issues and to provide a communication and cooperation platform for development organizations and every global citizen aiming to eradicate poverty. Its website (at http://www.netaid.org) will soon feature an Online Volunteering module produced by the UNV (United Nations Volunteers Programme) http://www.unv.org/ The central item will be a search engine for NGOs and CSOs to post, and for any individual in the world to find online volunteering assignments. Every development oriented NGO can become a NetAid Partner. NetAid Partner organizations are provided with a variety of services besides the option to post online volunteering assignments like setting up a webpage within NetAid, reporting about projects, submitting classifieds for required goods etc. You can register as a NetAid member from the NetAid website http://www.netaid.org/takeaction/join.htm ENQUIRIES: UNV/NetAid Team E-mail: netaid@unv.org
