Global Aid Direct – Helping People Reach Their Highest Potential
Volunteering With Global Aid Direct
Serving as a Global Aid Direct Volunteer, at home or abroad, is based on a commitment to the organization and to its contribution to help lessen human suffering worldwide.
Though Global Aid Direct assignments can be very rewarding, applicants thus need to be prepared to be deployed to difficult places and they need to be able to adjust to fast-changing living and working circumstances. They need to be aware that they may not have a choice regarding their duty station (it is determined by operational requirements, not personal preferences); and that their final duty station may only be known after they have been recruited and have arrived on the ground.
As a Global Aid Direct Volunteer you have the extraordinary opportunity to create beneficial change and have a positive impact on people's lives. Even if your Global Aid Direct assignment is fairly short, it can have a long-term impact and achieve a ripple effect that extends far beyond the immediate beneficiaries of your efforts.
Your role as a Global Aid Direct Volunteer is that of both facilitator and catalyst. Global Aid Direct encourages you to be creative and entrepreneurial in finding ways to develop capacity and to promote and foster volunteering for development - both within and beyond the formal framework of your assignment.
Ultimately, if development is to be effective and sustainable, the people affected by it must take ownership of its processes and drive them forward. Your actions as a Global Aid Direct Volunteer can also inspire others to volunteer and to believe that they too can make a contribution towards development.
Global Aid Direct recruits a great diversity of talents and offers a variety of volunteer opportunities.
Be aware that many Global Aid Direct Volunteers work in remote, isolated duty stations where basic comforts are limited. There may be no electricity or running water, there may be no recreation facilities to speak of and work may continue seven days a week.

Global Aid Direct, as a matter of practice, does not charge any application, processing or training fee at any stage of the recruitment process. If you have any questions as to Global Aid Direct volunteer opportunities you may have received, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beware also of fictitious vacancy announcements circulated through the Internet which ask you to remit a fee before you can be given a Global Aid Direct position or before you can register for training. If you believe that you have received such a notice, please forward it, and any other related information you have received, to email@example.com.
Since logos, emblems, names and addresses can be easily copied or reproduced, you are advised to take particular care in applying for vacancies, including undertaking all appropriate measures to protect against the unauthorized use of any personal information you may have provided as a result of the scam.
