TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERS DAY, THU 5 DEC 2019!

Posted on 05 Nov, 2019

The theme for IVD 2019 is ‘Volunteer for an Inclusive Future”. Don’t forget to show your appreciation for your wonderful volunteers!

International Volunteer Day (IVD) is mandated by the United Nations General Assembly and is held each year on 5 December.

It is a day for volunteers and volunteer involving communities to celebrate their efforts and to showcase the difference they make in their communities.

International Volunteers Day focuses on the value of volunteerism through appreciation of local volunteers, including the marginalised groups and women who make up over 60% of volunteers worldwide, and their impact on building resilient communities.

INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEER MANAGERS DAY, 5 NOV 2019

Posted on 30 Oct, 2019

Behind every volunteer lies an equally dedicated group of individuals and agencies who are responsible for the coordination, support, training, administration and recruitment of the world’s volunteers – skilled professionals who are adept at taking singular passion and turning it into effective action.

That is why we celebrate International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMDay) every year on 5 November.

It is important to let those professionals know that the spirit of volunteerism is enhanced and enabled by them – and to thank them.
