What is DART? 

DART is the “Disaster Assistance and Response Team” of GAiN. It is a team of trained volunteers available 24/7 that takes immediate action after disasters. The DART team provides assistance in the form of food and clothing distribution, temporary shelter, medical advice and trauma counselling, as well as initiating long-term reconstruction and development.

“DART is for me a way to express my inner passion to serve those in need and see them flourish.”

- Elseline, Holland

DART is looking for people to volunteer their time to serve in a disaster area, to be a constant in times of chaos, and to support local partners in their efforts to aid those affected by a disaster.
