Reposted from the VSO Bahaginan Facebook Page:
Part of VSO Bahaginan’s project is not just to send out international volunteers, but to receive valuable skills and talents as well. We are honored to have some skilled volunteers from Europe who will be helping the DOST Project NOAH and the DREAM (Disaster Risk and Exposure Assessment for Mitigation) Program by providing their expertise. These volunteers will be providing valuable input on matters such as flood risk mapping, coordination between various agencies institutions during disaster, improving websites, data processing management and information network connections, among many others. We’re all looking forward to heightening public awareness on disaster risk reduction and management. These volunteers are expected to coach the key personnel and management staff of NOAH and DREAM to ensure the sustainability of these initiatives beyond their brief stay.
