ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) is implementing the Volunteering in Humanitarian Aid- Hosting Organisation (VolinHA-HO) project since September 2015. The project is funded by European Commission under the EU Aid Volunteers (EUAV) Initiative. This is a consortium project of eight INGOs - three from Europe, two from South Asia, two from Africa and one from Latin America. The project aims at preparing future EUAV projects where humanitarian and volunteering organisations would share a common culture, where EU volunteers would fit into existing local volunteering dynamics and articulate with existing response mechanisms, especially in enhancing disaster risk reduction.

Apart from increasing capacity of local volunteers on humanitarian action, a vital objective of the project is to build the capacity of Hosting and Sending organisations to get certification from EUAV and to develop EU Aid Volunteer Deployment projects. Hence, AAB plans to conduct a scoping study aiming to identify gaps in humanitarian response preparedness at local and national level; and to identify potential area for engaging EU Aid Volunteers.

For the above mentioned purpose, ActionAid Bangladesh will be recruiting a Consultant/Consulting Firm to conduct the Scoping Study on behalf of AAB.

ActionAid is actively responding to the drought disaster in Kenya through various quick interventions.

In the last two weeks, the organization delivered food to 96,000 people, most of who are in the worst affected counties.

The Government of Kenya declared the drought a national disaster in February and called on international support in order to deliver humanitarian services to 2.7 million people. ActionAid works in 10 out of the 15 most affected counties with an estimated population of 1.5 million people.
