The III Spanish National Volunteering Plan, for years 2005 to 2009, is born.
Everybody’s congratulating each other because the plan is the result of a huge consensus among the Administration and NGOs. My sincere kudos :)
But my personal bias focus on two other things (bolds are mine):
From Strategic Line #3 to strengthen volunteering in different communities:
Support and foster new kinds of volunteering in the heart of organizations, such as online volunteering.
From Strategic Line #4 to support technically and financially the organizational and functional modenization of the Third Sector:
Enlargement of online training supply addressed to NGO participants, spreading and normalizing the access to this educational methodology.
Yes, this is really really good news. From strategic plans arise yearly director plans that decide on real policies, budgets, projects :)
