copy of Online Course: Humanitarian Response & Social Development


VV realized that the world is increasingly focused and aware of socio-environmental issues and concerned with the future of humanity. It was believing in the potential and power of humanitarian aid that the Humanitarian Response and Social Development course was created.


Increasingly, people are looking for ways to combine social actions in their personal, professional and business lives. This course was designed with the aim of providing knowledge of creating and managing humanitarian projects so that participating students are able to model and manage their own social and humanitarian projects, or for those who wish to work in the social or humanitarian field , as well as develop this segment within the company in which he already works.


The course stands out for bringing a world view of international geopolitics applied to areas with social problems, in addition to providing a methodological framework with regard to humanitarian aid tools.

Upon completion of the course, you will automatically receive a discount on VV's humanitarian immersions in Brazil and the world (except for the one-day VV Missions) and you will be part of ALUMNI VV : an exclusive group of alumni, volunteers, with benefits and opportunities.
