Here at VMM we’re over the moon to announce that we’ve been awarded Comprehensive Compliance status by the Comhlamh Code of Good Practice recognition panel.
The Comhlámh CoGP for Volunteer Sending Agencies is a set of standards for organisations involved in facilitating international volunteer placements in developing countries. The focus is of the CoGP to ensure overseas volunteering has a positive impact for the three main stakeholders: the volunteer, the sending agency, and the local project and community. We are enthusiastic solidarity partners of Comhlamh, are are so pleased to be recognised for the hard work we do ensuring that our projects are ethical, accountable and make real positive difference.
The highest-regarded set of guidelines, though, is the Code of Good Practice for Volunteer-Sending Organisations (CoGP) developed by Comhlamh, an Irish organisation’. The Guardian, Jan 13th 2016
