- 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.

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

Kos VolunteersKos is a small island in the Aegean sea. In 2015 about 55.000 Refguees landed on its shores. A group of local and international volunteers appears to be among the main provider of humanitarian aid, supporting Greek institutions, UNHCR and other organization. On Saturday, 5th December, on the occasion of the International Volunteer Day, more than 50 volunteers from different nationalities bonded together and cleaned up the shore of Kos town. Volunteers focused in the port and in the area of Lambi, where they managed to clean the shore completely, removing thousands of life jackets and even small inflatable boats. Gloves and bags were distributed to the participants, while a specially branded T-shirt commemorating the event was also provided. After the cleaning campaign all volunteers were invited by Mercy Corps at Boomerang. UNHCR, Samaritan's Purse, IOM and other organizations which provided technical support to the event, would like to express their gratitude to all the Kosian and international volunteers who, with great dedication, worked incessantly and managed to support thousands of refugees in the recent months, making Kos an example of humanitarianism and 'people to people' help.

Journée internationale des Volontaires 2015
Le 5 décembre, la journée internationale des volontaires, nous célébrons le volontariat dans toutes ses facettes, et nous rendons hommage aux volontaires qui travaillent pour implémenter les nouveaux objectifs de développement durable. Par le biais du volontariat, un individu peut avoir un impact sur le programme du développement durable en mobilisant et en encourageant ses gouvernements et communautés à s’engager. A l’occasion de la JIV 2015 joignez-vous à nous pour la reconnaissance des volontaires qui donnent de leur temps, de leurs énergies, et leurs compétences pour changer le monde pour un meilleur futur.
Mon action aussi compte!
Je participerai comme suit:
Sous le feu des projecteurs
Pendant cette campagne de la JIV 2015 vous allez voir des questions comme par exemple, “Faites-vous partie du changement ? » « Allez-vous relever le défi ? », « Etes-vous prêt ? » et les réponses, à mesure que des milliers d’individus montrent comment le volontariat contribue pleinement à avoir un monde meilleur.
Rejoignez cette campagne en partageant votre selfie ici ou sur les médias sociaux avec le mot-click #IVD2015selfie et partagez vos histoires avant et pendant le jour de la campagne, le 5 décembre. Le volontariat fait la différence dans le monde entier sur les objectifs mondiaux.
Le Secrétaire général des Nations Unies, Ban Ki-moon
« Dans le cadre de l’action que nous menons pour renforcer les capacités et établir durablement les nouveaux objectifs de développement durable, le bénévolat peut également se révéler un moyen d’action puissant et polyvalent. Il peut en effet contribuer à mobiliser le public et à faire participer la population à l’élaboration des plans d’action nationaux et à la réalisation des objectifs de développement durable. Des groupes de bénévoles peuvent contribuer à faire connaître les nouveaux objectifs au niveau local en organisant des débats entre les pouvoirs publics et la population afin d’arrêter des mesures concrètes, réalisables à différentes échelles. »
