The EVS scheme is financed by the European Union, and is run by different NGOs across Europe. The three most important elements of every EVS project are:

- Sending Organisation (SO) - an organisation in the volunteer's home country, responsible for preparing them for the EVS experience

- Hosting Organisation (HO) - an organisation in the hosting country responsible for volunteer's work placement

- The Volunteer!

ASHA is an accredited EVS Hosting and Sending Organisation.
