Volunteers safety is one of our primarily concern so we have designated a provision of security for the benefit of both volunteers and AEO. This is the most important part of the service we offers you.
Being a Volunteer requires changes in lifestyle preferences and habits in deference to host country cultural expectations to minimize security risks. Choices in dress, living arrangements, mean of travel, entertainment, and companionship may have a direct impact on how Volunteers are viewed, and thus treated, by their communities. Navigating the differences in gender relations may be one of the most sensitive and difficult lessons to learn, but one that can have a direct impact on Volunteers' security and the level of protection provided by the local community. Mature behavior and exercising sound judgment will enhance personal security.
