- I have most awarness in education area, because when I was a child I couldn't get a good education, as the tuition to get it was expensive. So, right now, I try to give free education to the children around my house. I started to build a little school inside my house and find donations to provide the children with books and stationary.

wilmer d. sauraproviding a voluntary services especially to marginalized group will give you an immeasurable happiness. seeing the smile and hearing their words of gratitude from the people you helped will surely satisfy and pay the hard work you've done for them.
- 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.

- Geoff Prewitt, Chief of the Development Programming Section (UNV Bonn) and Zelimir Mijic (UNV FU representative) participated in a number of events during the week of IVD in Bosnia and Herzegovina - both in Sarajevo and Banja Luka, Republic of Srpska. With UN Volunteer colleagues, we supported working with people with disabilities, street cleaning drives and other. We also participated in a wonderful volunteer gallery walk (Sarajevo) and Annual Volunteer Award Ceremony (Banja Luka). What a wonderful spirit of volunteerism that was shown - from all ages and genders and backgrounds - truly universal!

Ana M. CeperoVoluntariado es la oportundad de ser y hacer comunidad. Estamos diseñados para vivir en colaboración. El voluntariado además nos permite crecer como seres humanos y como profesionales. Junto a otros, he podido contagiar la relevancia de ser voluntarios en proyecto de: alcance comunitario, misiones, artes y juventud.

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.”
