Bicharo Gure”Work doesn’t know if you are male or female! Can I replace a wheel single handedly? Check. Can I drive a truck? Check! . . . When I was young, my father did not want me to go to school. I did my high school studies in hiding, with my mother’s help. I wanted to learn a new skill that I knew was going to help me in my life afterwards. Volunteering as a mechanic is a dream come true.” Bicharo Gure (Kenya), UN Volunteer Mechanic in the Democratic Republic of Congo

- RESULTS Canada citizen advocates are asking the Canadian government to prioritize and plan for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since August, they have been mobilizing communities and taking action by telling everyone about the goals and what they entail, as well as sharing information about the goals on social media. RESULTS Canada’s citizen advocates have also taken action by communicating with decision makers, whether in person, by phone, email or through the media. They have worked tirelessly to inform and influence decision-makers around Canada’s important role in reaching the Goals. The persistent and passionate efforts of RESULTS Canada volunteers have played a major role in preparing Canada to make the SDGs a reality.

- I volunteer for #globalgoals in Bonn!
- 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.

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.”
