[Call Outgoing Non-Reguler] Japan ASEAN Voluntary Service (JAVS)

Japan ASEAN Voluntary Service (JAVS)

Japan, Myanmar, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand

24 Jan – 21 April 2015

(Deadline 16 November 2014)


International Long and Middle Term Voluntary Service (LMTV) has been rapidly developed in Asia with creating unique impact to improve the situations of the environment, culture, development and so on, to activate the local communities and to promote intercultural understanding and friendship naturally, widely and deeply among the volunteers (mostly youth) and local people. It is also distinguished as one of powerful tools to grow up “global human resources” expected in many of universities, companies and governments.

On the other hand, the projects are not promoted yet widely enough compared with the potential needs in the societies due to lack of cross sectional collaboration, recognition in the societies and capacities of NGOs. In Europe, an exchange scheme of Long Term Volunteers named EVS (European Voluntary Service) has been actively organized since 1996 by collaboration between European Commission and NGOs in each country. As there is no such a wide inter-governmental agency in the whole Asia, NGOs have even a bigger role and mission to lead creation of AVS (Asian Voluntary Service) that could bring huge benefits for the betterment of the societies as well as stronger collaboration,promotion and quality improvement of international voluntary service NGOs by having common, standardized scheme.

So, AVS was started in 2014 Apr. and gathered 14 volunteers from 3 countries for the projects in 6 countries till 2014 Sep. However, without financial support, it’s not easy to gather volunteers from various countries and we also felt needs to gather all volunteers for preparation and evaluation, so have created this JAVS project to apply for the grant to support youth exchange in Japan and ASEAN newly launched by the Japan Foundation that has been approved! By this background, JAVS will be hosted in the same places and the period as AVS, so there are some possibilities that a few volunteers of AVS might be mixed and work/ live together with the volunteers of JAVS toward the common goals.
