Volunteers are a critical support in the implementation of the numerous EWRF Initiatives. EWRF was able to mobilise almost 400 volunteers in 2017. The VIP is a training programme formulated to teach and guide prospective volunteers on their role when interacting with the students on the ground. They become effective agents in reaching out to the students, who in the future will become responsible members of the Indian community. In the process, these volunteers obtain the relevant exposure and skills to become community conscious leaders in the future.
