Askal Tilahun”Volunteering at a refugee camp has helped me to grow on both a professional and personal level. I like the personal contact because this way, we try to make sure no one falls through the cracks. As much as I am here to serve others, I actually find that these women and everyone at the Dzaleka refugee camp are the true inspiration."Askal Tilahun (Ethiopia), UN Volunteer Associate Community Services Officer in Malawi”

- By our actions towards students and orphans we are trying to contribute to education and poverty eradication at our level in Uganda. We have the chance to meet wonderful children. Our impact may be little but every action counts. Volunteer! #UNVUganda #IVD
- Being a volunteer means being one of the strategic players in partnership capacity building process around the globe, with a special taste of effort, different from the waged job. Being a volunteer, is a purification of the humanbeing spirit toward a noble goal which is peace for development and rooted equality for all.

INternational Volunteer Day (IVD) 2015
On December 5th, International Volunteer Day, we not only celebrate volunteerism in all its facets - but also pay special tribute to volunteers working to implement the new global goals. Through volunteerism the person can impact the sustainable development agenda by mobilizing and engaging governments and communities. For IVD 2015 join us in recognizing the individuals who are engaged in volunteering their time, energies, and skills to change the world for a better future.
In this year’s IVD campaign you will see questions such as “Are you part of the change?”, “Will you take the challenge?“, “Are you ready?” and their answers, as thousands of individuals show how their volunteering is making a contribution and bring to light how volunteering is invaluable in making the world a better place.
Join us by posting your selfie here or on social media tagged with #IVD2015selfie and stories before and on 5 December 2015, filling the map to show how volunteering makes the difference in the Global Goals..
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
“As we seek to build capacities and to help the new agenda to take root, volunteerism can be another powerful and cross-cutting means of implementation. Volunteerism can help to expand and mobilize constituencies and to engage people in national planning and implementation for sustainable development goals. And volunteer groups can help to localize the new agenda by providing new areas of interaction between Governments and people for concrete and scalable actions.”
