GREAT participates in the NVDA meeting: 15th Training Networking Workcamp (TNW) and 14th General Assembly (GA) which takes place in Nepal this year. One of the members of NVDA network VIN Nepal will be our host in this annual event.
The NVDA meeting aims to improve and promote international voluntary service spirit and projects in each organization. Also to develop common action and cooperation among IVS NGOs and stakeholders. Additionally, the meeting aims to extend international work camp in the countries where there’s not yet organizing.
The GA event is an opportunity to evaluate the impact of IVS from last year, as well as making goals and plans in the future years within the network NVDA.
