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. Por que las acciones cuentan, hoy saludo y honro a quienes como yo son fuerza en el lugar donde les ha tocado estar y en aquellos a los cuales se han movilizado.

Margaret DeFazioFriendly visitor at Cornerstone Housing for Women, in Ottawa. Everyone needs friendly and fun interactions in their day. I try to provide a fun, caring and supportive visit for the women who need a friendly face. It is usually MY best day of the week, learning from and being cared about by these resilient women.

- Volunteers based in Luganville, Santo, Vanuatu, celebrated International Volunteer Day with a picnic. Volunteers attending were from Australia, New Zealand and Japan, working in Health, Education, Tourism, Communications, Fisheries, and Agriculture.
- 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.
Irina and GustavoWe work to make SDGs a reality!
- I volunteer for #globalgoals in Bonn!
Mauro Puzzo”I am both humbled and honored to be able to volunteer, to be a part of an effort that enables even the most vulnerable people to gain access to justice. While what we are individually doing can seem so small we must not forget that — as the saying common to so many cultures goes — it’s the small drops that make the mighty ocean.” Mauro Puzzo (Italy), UN Youth Volunteer Legal Officer in the Gambia

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.”
