Edinburgh Global Partnerships
Edinburgh Global Partnerships, EGP,is a student-run charity based at the University of Edinburgh. We send groups of volunteers overseas to pariticipate in a variety of community- led development projects. The projects range from HIV/ AIDS education to school expansion and infrastructure development, run from 4-10 weeks and take place over the summer break.
None of the projects are conceived by EGP; rather they are proposed by indigenous non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and accepted according to criteria set by EGP.
The academic year is used to train volunteers and to raise funds for the projects.
Volunteers are also givent the oppurtunity to volunteer locally via our Edinburgh Links programme.
