This agreement will refer to the commitments that Azad Foundation makes to the volunteer, and expectations that Azad Foundation has of volunteers. The agreement will refer to an individual volunteer description.
Volunteers who have a complaint or grievance should raise the matter with their immediate supervisor in the first instance. If this is not appropriate or not successful, the volunteer should approach the CEO.
Reimbursement of Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Azad Foundation recognizes that volunteers incur expenses when providing a service. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed by prior agreement with their supervisor. This means volunteers anticipating claiming such expenses should discuss the matter in advance.

All volunteers should be aware of and understand the Azad Foundation's policy on privacy and confidentiality.
