Volunteers are the “Backbone” of the RC/RC Movement

The involvement of youth and volunteers play a pivotal role in the implementation of PRC’s activities and maintain strong links and regular interaction with the targeted communities. The engagement of volunteers in building community resilience also contributes to the sustainability of the programs and ensures a permanent presence of PRC at community level.

PRC, through extended outreach partnerships, will strengthen its existing volunteer base and significantly contribute to the IFRC Global Initiative of “One Billion Coalition for Resilience”. PRC will establish Community Emergency Response Teams of volunteers in all districts as well to strengthen the disaster response capacity. In a phased approach, PRC will enhance its presence and reach out to all communities, nationwide. It will train its volunteers (Red Crescent Corps) in promoting a culture of healthy and safe living. Our volunteers will be recruited from schools, colleges and universities, communities and different professions.
