The European Voluntary Service (EVS) paved way for young people from Europe to be actively involved in various international voluntary activities from different developing countries. EVS is a very effective tool and mechanism to promote global responsibility and strengthen global cooperation using diversity as strength towards solidarity and understanding. Recognizing EVS as an effective tool in global cooperation requires a need to properly rationalize and strengthen the educational component of the program.
