Contributing to Luxembourg’s development cooperation
Programme support manages operations relating to the deployment of human resources working on cooperation: unpaid internships, internships within the international NGO ENDA Tiers-Monde, the cooperation volunteer service (SVC); Junior Technical Assistants (JTAs, an MFA-funded development cooperation internship programme managed and supervised by LuxDev) or the Junior Professional Officers (JPOs) of the various UN agencies.
In order to develop or supervise projects, approved NGOs hire aid workers for a minimum of two years. In addition, the purpose of development cooperation leave is to enable members of accredited NGOs to participate in development programmes and projects in order to assist the people of developing countries, both for missions in Luxembourg and abroad. Development cooperation leave and aid worker status are granted in the form of ministerial orders.
