Did You Know?
“To ease one’s heartache is to forget one’s own”-Abraham Lincoln
In line with these verses. A few guys and girls (we are a national YOUTH volunteering organization – Pun intended) turn out every weekend which would have been spent just simply otherwise. They choose; volunteer and keep alive a cause. For such people across the world; a day volunteers itself as the international Volunteer day in line with United Nations on December 5th.
It is in international observance since 1985. It offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make visible their contributions – at local, national and international levels – to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).The International Volunteer Day is marked by many non-governmental organizations, including Red Cross, scouts and others. It is also marked and supported by United Nations Volunteers.
