How does the Ukraineaidmanual (“Metodichka volontera”) project work?

More information: Ukraineaidmanual (“Volunteer’s Manual”) is an Internet portal that contains an interactive  database  (text, photo, and video ) for volunteers of all levels.

The goals of the project are:

 Collection of the main types of volunteer activities and their classification;
Creating a resource that allows to level up the awareness of the volunteer community in Ukraine and to spread expertise and skills that are necessary to provide quality support;
