Massive Recruitment at CESVI (46 Vacancies)


Re - Advertisement

Summary: Cesvi, established in 1985, is a secular, independent association, working for global solidarity.

In the values which guide Cesvi, the moral principle of human solidarity and the ideal of social justice are transformed into humanitarian aid and development, reinforcing an affirmation of universal human rights.

In the acronym Cesvi, the words “Cooperazione e Sviluppo” (Cooperation and Development) underline the fact that Cesvi bases its philosophy on the idea of giving the recipients of aid a leading role, working together for their own natural benefit.

It is for this reason that Cesvi is strongly committed to making sure that international aid does not become mere charity, and nor is it influenced by the donors’ self-interest.
