Volunteering Overseas

Outgoing is an international voluntary services program where IIWC of PKBI sends volunteers as individuals or groups abroad. To do so, we cooperate with international partners that are recognized around the world such as NVDA, CCIVS, SCI, and Alliance. IVS organizations around the world agreed on a rule in the volunteer exchange with the sending-hosting system, where an individual who wants to join IVS abroad must apply through local organizations in their living country. This organization (IIWC of PKBI for Indonesian only) later called the sending organization and will register volunteers to the designated organization (hosting). This is to ensure volunteers in terms of security, and that any volunteers to prepare well in accordance with the objectives of each project.
