International Volunteer Day (IVD)

Published on Monday, 04 December 2017 13:15

International Volunteer Day (IVD) on5 December was designated by the United Nations in 1985 as an international observance day to celebrate the power and potential of volunteerism. As we celebrate this year International Volunteer Day (IVD), we applaud our volunteers who have contributed immensely in many developmental areas where they have uplifted community development projects across the country. We are grateful to our volunteers whose impact on volunteerism has benefited and transformed communities and vulnerable members of the society through promotion of sustainable development to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. 

On this day as we continue with our spirit of volunteerism, let’s strive towards renewing our determination through giving back to the society and addressing socio-economic disparities. In the words of Marjorie Moore, "Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections every year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in".

Volunteering with CIVS Kenya makes a difference for the most vulnerable and promotes intercultural exchange and understanding. Find here more details about our programs.
