GRANTS FOR VOLUNTEERS RETURNING TO IRELAND
At EIL we believe that perhaps the most significant part of a short-term volunteer programme abroad actually begins when participants return home to Ireland. On a long-term basis, the most effective way in which volunteers can truly make a difference is to educate others about global justice, the Global Goals and the lives of ordinary people in the global south.
EIL recognizes that it can be difficult for returned volunteers to continue their engagement here in Ireland. They may face financial barriers, time constraints or be unable to access the necessary help and support. The EIL Seed Fund Micro Grant Scheme exists to assist returned volunteers to overcome these barriers by providing successful applicants with funding, guidance and support to implement their own awareness-raising projects in Ireland. Volunteers can apply to the Seed Fund as individuals or as part of a group.
