At the start of every academic year, EGP establishes 4-7 partnerships with local NGOs with whom they collaborate in the execution of a project. NGOs are only eligible to one year partnerships. The time constraint inherent in these partnerships requires for projects to be self-sufficient and sustainable once volunteers have left.
Please visit our "Hosts" section if you are interested in forming a partnership with EGP.
EGP recruits volunteers to fundraise the budget for each of the different projects, and oversees several financial and logistical matters, whilst local NGO arrange matters in the field site locating labourers, procuring materials, and arranging accommodation for volunteers. This union between EGP and local NGOs relies on continued communication and cooperation for the successful implementation of projects.
