The Role of the Directorate General for International Development Cooperation (Hellenic Aid)
The concept of international development co-operation is integrally linked to the adoption of co-ordinated action by the developed countries, in order to confront effectively with enormous global problems, such as poverty, hunger, contagious diseases and illiteracy, hitting mostly the developing world. Within this effort of the international community, the contribution of civil society is deemed as of extreme important.
Civil society consists of -although not limited to- non governmental organizations (NGOs), charities, local or municipal organizations of citizens, religious communities, youth movements etc.
The active participation of such sorts of social activity does not only constitute a prerequisite of democracy good governance, but it is highly essential for development, as a process inclusive of both state actors as well as private synergies.
Hellenic Aid, as the co-ordinator of the national development policy, appreciates volunteerism, in any form, and therefore supports its promotion within the greek civil society and, especially, youth.
Voluntary action, within the framework of international development cooperation, may assume various forms, according to the discretion, interests and professional background of each one of us, that is to say membership to NGOs either active in general development issues or specialized ones in fields, such as health, environment, technical co-operation etc. Through this participation, volunteers may take action in the implementation of humanitarian, development and development education projects and activities, co-financed by Hellenic Aid, since the said NGO is already registered to the Special Register of the Service.
