Module 1: History of volunteers projects (5/8)

Volunteer projects have existed for almost a century. The idea started in France during the 1920s, just after World War I. At that time, the goal was not only to rebuild devastated villages, but also to show that international cooperation was still possible and could help restore world peace. Over the years, a volunteer project has become an educational project that contributes to participants’ personal and social development as well.
