ET Assemble – Digital Volunteers GREAT

ET Assemble – Digital Volunteers GREAT

GREAT as a sending and hosting organization conducts international voluntary activities throughout the year in Indonesia and other countries. In the wake of the global pandemic COVID-19, the Indonesian government applies work from home and physical distancing policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It results in many changes in our work. Volunteers cannot mobile to volunteer, both in their own cities and in other countries.

Also, we must adapt to the new situation by converting some manual works to digital. GREAT’s blog project was planned to launch this year by combining Indonesian and international volunteers working together in one place. Nevertheless, we are still working on it virtually by opening this opportunity for volunteers who are interested in blog work behind the scene.
