For each project we set up a project group and divide the tasks and responsibilities. That group of interested people has the meetings on a weekly basis. In that working process we regularly evaluate the work and plan the further steps to achieve project's goals. Each project includes mentorship and supervision.
We encourage our volunteers to take action and co-operate wherever and as much as possible in the all of projects. Our EVS volunteer is encouraged to organize his/her own project as well. We support him/her with all needed informations, kits, social network etc. Our vision is that our EVS volunteer co-operate with other volunteers within IniciativAngola. They can develop together the projects about social justice, human rights, diversity, marginal existence etc.
