Asfar is an accredited European Solidarity Corps delivery organisation offering long tern volunteering opportunities in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus,  as part of our commitment both to Young People and in providing volunteering opportunities to make a difference to our society.

The European Solidarity Corps programme offers young people the chance to make a real difference to their world – and to their own life – through the programme.

The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) provides young people with the opportunity to express their personal commitment through unpaid and full-time voluntary activities in a foreign country within or outside the EU.

The ESC seeks to develop solidarity, mutual understanding and tolerance among young people, thus contributing to reinforcing social cohesion in the European Union and to promoting young people’s active citizenship. Their learning experience is formally recognized through a Youthpass. Participation is free for the volunteers (with the exception of a possible contribution towards travel costs) who also receive board and lodgings, insurance cover and an allowance for the duration of the project.

ESC volunteers leaving for more than two months can get additional support to learn, and test their progress in, the language used during their volunteering.
