Maulina SariUNV programme is the UN organization that promotes volunteerism to support peace and development worldwide. Volunteerism can transform the pace and nature of development, and it benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer. UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for volunteerism globally, encouraging partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing volunteers. “In celebrating IVD.. We are medical doctors invested in enabling the health sector for citizen engagement: in the development of health policies and supportive patient's right; in volunteer management and support; in measuring the impact of volunteering; and in knowledge building and knowledge sharing about volunteering and what it can achieve.” “We engage the will, the positive energy and the innovation of millions of people towards realizing SDG's and in building health cohesion, mutual understanding and the achievement of community- health centred goals.”
Fabio"I think the way I can help the society and create an impact on people is volunteering". #actioncounts

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

Día Internacional de los Voluntarios 2015
El 5 de diciembre, Día internacional de los Voluntarios, celebramos el voluntariado en todas sus vertientes; también rendimos homenaje a los voluntarios que contribuyen a aplicar los nuevos objetivos de desarrollo sostenible. A través del voluntariado, las personas pueden tener un impacto sobre la agenda de desarrollo sostenible movilizando e involucrando a sus gobiernos y comunidades. Para el DIV 2015, reconocemos la labor de los individuos que se implican como voluntarios ofreciendo su tiempo, energía y talento para cambiar el mundo por un futuro mejor.
Que mis acciones cuenten
Que mi área de trabajo también cuente
Y que mis acciones se reconozcan
En la campaña del DIV de este año, miles de personas nos mostrarán que las aportaciones de los voluntarios son inestimables y contribuyen a hacer del mundo un lugar mejor a través de respuestas a preguntas como: “¿Eres parte del cambio?”, “¿Aceptarás el desafío?”, “¿Estás list@?”.
Únase a esta campaña compartiendo sus historias y sus selfies aquí o en medios sociales junto al hashtag #IVD2015selfie en los días previos y durante el DIV, el 5 de diciembre, para completar el mapa mostrando cómo el voluntariado marca la diferencia para los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible.
Secretario General de las Naciones Unidas, Ban Ki-moon
“Mientras procuramos crear la capacidad e impulsar la aplicación de la nueva agenda, las actividades voluntarias pueden pasar a ser otro poderoso medio para la aplicación de la agenda en distintos sectores. Las actividades voluntarias pueden contribuir a ampliar y movilizar a las sociedades y lograr la participación de las personas en los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible a nivel nacional. Además, los grupos de voluntarios pueden ayudar a adaptar la nueva agenda a nivel local proporcionando nuevos espacios de interacción entre los gobiernos y las personas orientados a la adopción de medidas concretas y susceptibles de aplicarse en mayor escala.”
